Resolution to Release an Easement for Sanitary Sewer at 111 N. First Street and 300 W. Huron Street (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
This resolution releases a City easement for sanitary sewer on 111 N. First Street and 300 W. Huron St. The easement was obtained in the 1890s over a number of properties in this block and the City recently received a request from the owners of 111 N. First Street and 300 W. Huron St. to release the easement as to these properties. City Public Services staff have determined that the portion of the easement over these properties is not necessary for any current or future City needs and may be released.

Release of the easement is recommended.
