10.1 To authorize the filing of condemnation action to obtain easement and real property for location of sewer lines and pump station (Sewer).

Purpose: To obtain authorization to file condemnation actions in the event that the City of Frankfort is unable to negotiate the purchase of an easement and real property for the location of sewer lines and a pump station in connection with the 421 sewer expansion project.
Background: The City of Frankfort has obtained a number of easements from homeowners in order to upgrade its sewer system out US 421 in Franklin County, Kentucky. The City of Frankfort is still negotiating with several landowners to purchase easements and real property for the location of sewer lines and a pump station. The Sewer Department is requesting authorization to file condemnation actions to obtain the needed easements and real property in the event that the negotiations are unsuccessful.

 

Financial Analysis: The fiscal impact upon the Sewer Department's budget is difficult to predict because the Court assigned Commissioners will initially determine the amount to be paid by the City of Frankfort for the necessary easement and real property, with the final amount to be determined in the litigation process. Additionally, the Sewer Department is still in negotiations with the affected landowners.
