Explanation
AN21-006

BACKGROUND:
This ordinance approves the acceptance of certain territory (AN21-006) by the city of Columbus and authorizes its transfer from Blendon Township to Montgomery Township per an annexation agreement between the City and the Township. The Ohio Revised Code stipulates that to be effective, City acceptance must take place a minimum of 60 days from the receipt by the City Clerk of the approval notice from the county. If City Council does not accept the ordinance within 120 days of its first consideration, the annexation will be considered rejected. This petition was filed with Franklin County on April 22, 2021. City Council approved a service ordinance addressing the site on May 10, 2021. Franklin County approved the annexation on May 25, 2021 and the City Clerk received notice on June 29, 2021.

The annexation agreement between the City and Township was executed while the annexation of the subject territory was in progress, and the agreement stipulates its boundaries be conformed to Montgomery Township following acceptance. This ordinance authorizes the submission of a petition to the Board of County Commissioners of Franklin County, Ohio, requesting that the boundary lines of Montgomery Township be changed to make them identical with the corporate limits of the City of Columbus for this annexation. The petition will be filed in accordance with Section 503.07 of the Ohio Revised Code.

FISCAL IMPACT:
Provision of municipal services does represent cost to the City; however, the annexation of land also has the potential to create revenue to the City.
