Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to amend an easement on Spring Street with American Electric Power Service Corporation.

Explanation

 

Part of an easement was granted to NWD Investments, LLC by the City of Columbus, dated December 3, 2001, authorized by Ordinance 2071-01 and within the 0.021 acre pedestrian connector easement area to allow an aerial encroachment over the right-of-way of Spring Street and allow the construction and maintenance of a pedestrian bridge, as recorded within instrument number 200208230208422.

 

NWD Investments, LLC then transferred this easement and bridge to American Electric Power Service Corporation in November 2002 by instrument 200304160110640. Now, American Electric Power Service Corporation desires to amend the easement. The amended easement will allow American Electric Power Service Corporation and the City to clarify when the bridge needs an inspection and allow the installation of an American Electric Power sign to be installed onto the bridge within the easement. After investigation by the Department of Public Service, it has been determined that the amendment of this easement will not adversely affect the City and help maintain a safer environment for the general public. The following legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to amend the easement for American Electric Power Service Corporation as described within the documents.
