BACKGROUND:

The County of Albemarle grants deeds of easement to the Albemarle County Service Authority (“ACSA”) for the installation and maintenance of water and sewer lines on County-owned property.  The deeds set forth the rights and responsibilities of the ACSA and the rights and remedies of the County to assure proper installation and maintenance of the water and sewer lines.  Pursuant to Virginia Code Section 15.2-1803, the Board must authorize the County Executive to execute these deeds on behalf of the County.  It has been the County’s practice to authorize these deeds on an individual basis.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

4.2   Fund County services in a fair, efficient manner and improve needed public facilities and infrastructure.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Because it is necessary for the County to grant deeds of easement to the ACSA for the installation and maintenance of water and sewer lines on County-owned property, the efficiency of government would be improved by generally delegating the authority to the County Executive to execute such deeds on behalf of the County.  A proposed Resolution authorizing the County Executive to execute water and sewer easements to the ACSA is attached as Attachment A.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

This authorization will streamline the process and minimize staff resource requirements.  It will also facilitate a more timely completion of the paperwork, allowing the work to begin sooner.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board adopt the attached Resolution (Attachment A) to authorize the County Executive to execute water and sewer deeds of easement to the ACSA on behalf of the County, provided that such deeds of easement are approved as to form and content by the County Attorney.
