02/06/2018 06B Surplus Property; DID #48 - Set Hearing DateBUSINESS OF THE CITY COUNCIL YAKIMA, WASHINGTON AGENDA STATEMENT 1 Item No. 6.B. For Meeting of: February 6, 2018 ITEM TITLE: Set date of February20, 2018 fora Public Hearing to declare property surplus to the City needs and abandon a section of D I D #48 SUBMITTED BY: Brett Sheffield, Chief Engineer 576-6797 Scott Schafer, Public Works Director SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Set a Public Hearing for February 20, 2018, 6:30 pm, to declare a section of Drainage Improvement District (DID) #48 abandoned, from manholes 71 through 74 in the section of DID pipe from the vicinity of the intersection of Arlington Street and 64th Avenue to approximately 300 feet north of the intersection of Nob Hill Boulevard and 64th Avenue. All property rights to DI Ds within City limits were ceded to the City by Yakima County when the City accepted transfer of this conveyance system. There is little legal specificity as to how to decommission DI D lines after they are essentially abandoned. As a result, the City is treating them as a utility for purposes of abandonment and asking the City Council to hold a public hearing declaring the above -listed section of DID #48 surplus property. This section of D I D #48 is no longer necessary as it has been replaced by a 21 -inch diameter pipe that is parallel to, and within the 64th Avenue right of way. Since the City has neither a use or need for this portion of the DID system, the property owner would like to remove this section of pipe and easement from the property.
