Overview: A private home in the Springcrest neighborhood was constructed in 1998 and connected to an OWASA sewer main located on Town property without the necessary sewer easement. The attached resolution would grant an approximately 40-foot-long and 20-foot-wide private sewer easement across Town property to the homeowners of 200 Perry Creek Road. The Town property is located adjacent to Perry Creek Road and Dry Creek in the Springcrest neighborhood.

Attached is the property owner's survey of the requested easement.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt the attached resolution granting a sewer easement across Town property to the owners of the home at 200 Perry Creek Road.

Key Issues:
* Town staff granted the homeowners temporary access across Town property in 2018 in order to allow repair of a leaking sewer line
* The proposed private sewer easement overlays the pipe that was installed across Town property at the time the home was built
* Lack of a permanent sewer easement could complicate sale or transfer of the 200 Perry Creek Road property in the future

Fiscal Impact/Resources: No Town funding was used to make the sewer repairs or prepare the easement documents. We anticipate no future Town expenditures.
