Title
Resolution to Release an Easement for Sanitary Sewer at 308 W. Huron Street (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
This resolution releases a City easement for sanitary sewer on 308 W. Street. The easement was obtained in the 1890s over a number of properties in this block and the City recently received a request from the owner of 308 W. Huron Street to release the easement as to their property. City Public Services staff determined that the portion of the easement over 308 W. Huron Street is not necessary for any current or future City needs and may be released.

Release of the easement is recommended.
