EXPLANATION

BACKGROUND: The City owns real property located at 5433 Fisher Road, Columbus, Ohio 43228 {Franklin County Tax Parcel 010-243356} (“Property”), which is commonly known as Fire Station 26 and is managed by the Department of Finance and Management (“Finance”). The Department of Public Service is currently undertaking intersection improvements as part of the Hilliard Rome Road at Fedner Road FRA CR03-12.96 PID 98557 project. In order to complete the project, AT&T Corp. (“AT&T”) will need to move an underground fiber optic line from the roadway to a new easement. AT&T now requests the applicable subsurface utility easement burdening a portion of the Property in order to install and maintain a fiber optic cable and associated appurtenances for communications and internet services (“Easement”). Finance reviewed the request and, due to the fiber optic line needing to be moved to accommodate the City’s project, supports granting AT&T an approximate 0.505 acre easement at no cost in consideration that (i) the Easement supports public communications and internet services, and (ii), the Easement will be nonexclusive.

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE: Not applicable.

FISCAL IMPACT: Not applicable.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested in order to allow for the timely granting of the easements which with allow for the completion of the intersection improvements and avoid any unnecessary delays in construction which will preserve the public peace, health, property, safety, and welfare.
