AN ORDINANCE APPROVING A DRIVEWAY EASTMENT OVER VILLAGE OWNED PROPERTY FOR RICHARD E. SLOAN, AND AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO EXECUTE SAID EASEMENT, AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.
WHEREAS, with the past sale of a parcel of land to the Village, the prior owners of the Richard E. Sloan property inadvertently landlocked the rear of their own property; and
WHEREAS, at present the rear of said property is unmarketable as a result; and
WHEREAS, Richard E. Sloan has requested the village grant an access easement on the village’s existing drive to the Village garage in order to make said rear parcel marketable for sale; and
WHEREAS, it is in the best interests of the Village’s citizenry and to avoid a negative economic impact on its residents the Village declares this to be an emergency.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the Village of Apple Creek, Ohio, that:
The terms, conditions and contents of that driveway easement attached hereto as Exhibit “A” are approved by Village Council.
The Mayor is hereby authorized to execute said easement on behalf of the Village of Apple Creek.
This Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure and shall take effect and be in force immediately from and after its passage. The reason for the emergency lies in the fact that this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of public health, safety and welfare.
All prior Ordinances which conflict with the provisions of this Ordinance are hereby repealed to the extent that they are in conflict herewith.
If any provision of this Ordinance, or the application thereof to any person or circumstance, is held invalid, the invalidity does not affect other provisions or applications of this Ordinance which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to this end the provisions are severable.
