From: W. Clarke Whitfield, Jr.

COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     08/04/2020
SUMMARY
The City needs to obtain an easement across a piece of land in the County to extend electrical service to new customers.  The Parcel already has an existing, unused utility easement, however, it is not located where utilities can most effectively extend the power lines.  The landowner has requested the City vacate the existing unused easement in exchange for granting the new easement where the City desires.
BACKGROUND
The Utility Department needs to acquire an easement to extend power lines in the County to connect a new customer.  The land where the easement is needed already has a City easement for utilities across it, however, the easement is not located where Danville Utilities needs for this new interconnection.  The landowner is willing to grant an easement in the needed location provided that the City vacate its existing easement across the same property that is not, and has not been utilized.  In order to vacate the unused easement, City Council must pass a resolution doing so.  
RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends adoption of the attached resolution vacating the unused easement to allow Danville Utilities to obtain the new easement where needed.
