RESOLUTION ACCEPTING DONATION OF UTILITY EASEMENTS FROM BILLMAN CONSTRUCTION, INC., RELATED TO PROPERTY SOUTHWEST OF ARROWHEAD ROAD AND KENWOOD AVENUE.

BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to accept a corrected donation of easements for utility purposes located southeast of Arrowhead Road and Kenwood Avenue, a copy of which is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. _________________ from Billman Construction, Inc., at no cost to the city.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes the acceptance of the donation of corrected utility easements over property located southwest of Arrowhead Road and Kenwood Avenue in order to facilitate the development of the affected property for residential development.


The easements being donated will provide a utility easement along the south sides of two half-blocks of property with frontage on Buffalo Street along with corridors to allow connection of those easements to existing utility easements in Buffalo Street.


The Council had previously accepted similar easements from Billman but the description of the easement attached to the original resolution (07-0242R) included easements over property that Billman had already sold and so it is necessary to approve this resolution authorizing acceptance of easements only over property owned by the donor and to secure the remainder of the easement from its present owner (see companion resolution).
