Approve Right of Way Encroachment Easement on 6th Ave NE at 6th St NE.

City Attorney Martineck stated the house at 605 Chautauqua Blvd. has a garage that has been encroaching on 6th Ave NE for about 75 years.  The lender will not provide a loan unless the homeowner has an easement.  We have drafted the easement to give the homeowner 10 feet of easement to provide access to the garage.  No other obstructions can be placed within that 10 feet.  If the garage goes away, so does the easement.

Commissioner Bishop moved to approve, seconded by Commissioner Gulmon.  Motion carried.

City Attorney Martineck also added there is a waiver of liability so if some reason a member of the street crew would damage the garage, since it is in the easement there would be no liability to the City.


Meeting was adjourned at 12:03 PM.
