Body

WHEREAS, Dane County is the owner of property (Lyckberg Park) located at 102 Koster Street, City of Madison, Wisconsin, Wisconsin (the “Property”); and

 

WHEREAS, on January 15, 2016 Dane County granted, within the Property, a Public Storm Sewer and Storm Water Drainage Easement (“Existing Easement) to improve drainage, treat storm water and mitigate flooding issues within the Property and adjacent lands; and

 

WHEREAS, currently, storm water drainage from Koster Street passes through the southerly portion of the Property and onto lands lying westerly of the Property (the “Westerly Lands) contributing to flooding of those Westerly Lands ; and

 

WHEREAS, the City of Madison (“City”) Engineering Division established Engineering Project No. 11676 - Koster Street and Rusk Avenue Reconstruction for the design and reconstruction of Koster Street, including the construction of public street improvements and storm sewer that will assist in mitigating the flooding within the Westerly Lands; and

 

WHEREAS, there will be low point in the future reconstructed Koster Street which will require an emergency storm water overflow from Koster Street onto the Property; and

 

WHEREAS, to further mitigate flooding and improve drainage within the Westerly Lands, the City has requested that Dane County cooperate allowing the emergency overflow storm water runoff water from Koster Street to flow through the Property and into the storm water management facility within the Existing Easement; and

 

WHEREAS, Dane County has agreed to grant a Public Storm Sewer & Storm Water Drainage Easement (“Easement”) to the City to construct and maintain necessary storm water drainage facilities on the Property from Koster Street to the storm water management facility. 

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City is hereby authorized to accept and the Mayor and the City Clerk are hereby authorized to execute a Public Storm Sewer & Storm Water Drainage Easement from Dane County, at no cost to the City, across a portion of the Property (the “Easement Area”) more particularly described on attached Exhibit A and depicted on attached Exhibit B, subject to the following general terms and conditions:

2)                     In all cases, Dane County and the City shall comply with all applicable laws, including, but not limited to standards, regulations, ordinances, codes, and statutes, as well as obtain all permits, required for any construction, repair, or maintenance activity, or any other activity related to environmental pollution, contamination, or occupational health and safety.

 

3)                     All work shall be performed in such a manner as in no way to permanently interfere with or endanger the use of the Easement Area.
