Ordinance 42-01

 AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE TO EXTEND SEWER SERVICES TO THE GRANVILLE EXEMPTED VILLAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT'S NEW SCHOOL AND AUTHORIZING THE VILLAGE TO SELL ITS SURPLUS UTILITIES, AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.

 WHEREAS, the Granville Exempted Village School District Board of Education ("the District") has determined that as a result of increased enrollment, the construction of a new intermediate grade 4,5 & 6 school is an absolute necessity (“the new school”); and

 WHEREAS, the District has decided to construct the new school on 179 acres located between Burg Street and Loudon Street in the Northern portion of Granville Township, on property known as the Van Winkle property (“Van Winkle property”); and

 WHEREAS, the Van Winkle property is located outside of the corporate boundaries of the Village of Granville (“the Village”); and

 WHEREAS, the Van Winkle property must be serviced with sewer, and the Ohio EPA has indicated a preference for centralized sewage treatment in this instance; and

 WHEREAS, the Village of Granville ("the Village") has a sewer system; and

 WHEREAS, the Village sewer facilities have surplus capacity at the present time; and

 WHEREAS, the Village has a long established policy to deny new sewer utility service connections to properties or structures located outside the corporate boundaries of the Village to control and shape growth with an emphasis on preserving farmland, open space, natural land features and rural atmosphere that is unique to the Village, and it hereby restates that policy (“policy”); and

WHEREAS, the District previously requested the selective extension of water and sewer services to the Van Winkle site; and

WHEREAS, on January 17, 2001, the Granville Village Council (“Village Council”) denied the District’s request for the selective extension of water and sewer services to the Van Winkle site based upon the Village’s longstanding policy; and

WHEREAS, the Granville Township Board of Zoning Appeal (“BZA”) expressly made its approval of a conditional use permit for the school contingent upon an Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (“OEPA”) approved wastewater system; and

WHEREAS, the District began construction of the new school despite the Village Council’s denial and before securing a permit to install an on-site sewer system from the OEPA; and

WHEREAS, on September 12, 2001, the OEPA indicated an unwillingness to approve the on-site sewer system because of environmental pollution risks; and

WHEREAS, OEPA’s position is that “when sanitary sewers are available they should be the preferred alternative and should be approved in lieu of alternatives such as package plants” (See OEPA letter of October 22, 2001, attached hereto as Exhibit 1); and

WHEREAS, even though the OEPA cannot, by law, force the Village to extend water and sewer services, the Village nevertheless is sensitive to the OEPA’s concerns and would like to assist the OEPA in meeting its goals; and

WHEREAS, the Village and the District are concerned about the substantial public funds which have already been expended on the Van Winkle property and new school (land purchase, initial construction, and soil stabilization); and

WHEREAS, at the request of the OEPA, the District has again requested that the Village provide sewer utility services to the Van Winkle property and the new school; and in response to such request the Village Council has adopted Ordinance No. 37-01 and Ordinance 40-01, which Ordinances generally provide for the extension of the Village’s sanitary sewer utility service to the Van Winkle property and the new school, subject to conditions; and WHEREAS, the Village hereby finds and determines that it is in the best interest of the Village to provide the surplus sewer services to the District on an exclusive basis; and

 WHEREAS, the District shall pay for the sewage services according to the contract between the Village and the District; and

 WHEREAS, as further consideration for the foregoing, the District agrees to place deed restrictions on the Van Winkle property containing the new school site so that the Van Winkle property will only be used for school purposes in the future.

 NOW THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED, by the Council of Granville, Ohio, a majority of the elected members concurring that:

 Section 1. The Village has previously stated its policy of not providing surplus utility services to any property outside of the boundaries of the Village, and it hereby restates that policy. However, the Village finds it to be in the best interest of the residents of the Village due to the emergency that has developed to assist the District in performing its constitutional and statutory duties of education to the residents of the Village and to the residents of adjacent townships by providing essential sewer services to the District;

 Section 2. The Granville Village Council authorizes the Village Manager to enter into a contract with the District setting forth the rights, duties and responsibilities of the parties, including the rates and billing terms, with regard to the sewer services, subject to approval by Council;

 Section 3. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Ordinance and the terms and conditions of the contract to be entered into between the Village and District, the Village is hereby authorized to and shall provide surplus sewer to the new school, so long as such property is intended to be, and when developed is used, exclusively for public school purposes by the District. The sewer utility services shall not be used for any other purpose, such as for residential or commercial purposes. The sewer services shall be provided to the District on an exclusive basis for 50 years commencing upon the enactment of this Ordinance. In addition, the contract for sewer services shall contain the following terms, conditions, and obligations: (i) The sewer lines shall be sized and limited to accommodate the new school and avoid excess capacity; (ii) the School District shall construct an access road between Burg Street and Loudon Street and will discuss with the BZA and Granville Township (“Township”) when the road should be open; (iii) the School District shall discuss with the Township whether a public road between Burg Street and Loudon Street across the Van Winkle property is desirable and needed; (iv) the School District shall work with the Village and the Township in the construction of a bike path from the existing high school to the new school and, if necessary, shall participate in the expense of constructing such bike path, and (v) the School District shall agree to set aside some portion of the Van Winkle property as permanent green space, such number to be negotiated with the Village after the School District obtains expert guidance;

 Section 4. The terms and conditions of the contract to be entered into between the Village and the District shall contain a provision that the District and the Village will contact property owners and make a good faith effort to annex the Van Winkle property to the Village. The contract shall also contain a provision that if the District is unable to obtain sufficient property owner support for an annexation at this time, the District agrees to apply for annexation of the Van Winkle property to the Village at any time in the future when annexation becomes legally possible;

 Section 5. It is hereby determined that the public utility service shall be provided to the District on an exclusive basis, and that no other property shall be permitted to connect to any such services or the improvements used to provide such services. It is hereby determined to be in the best interest of the Village to prevent any such connections or any other use of the utility services or improvement provided therewith. If School District is successful in annexing the Van Winkle property and such annexation is completed within two (2) years from the date of this ordinance, the Village hereby states its willingness to negotiate with the School District to share a portion of the costs described in this Section 5. The exact amount of the Village’s participation is subject to negotiation;

 Section 6. The District will construct, maintain, and repair, at its own cost, all necessary lines, pipes, and other conduits necessary to transport sewage between the Village and the school site, subject to approval of the Village;

 Section 7. The District will also obtain, at its own cost, any easements necessary for the transportation of the sewage;

 Section 8. The District will retain ownership of all lines, pipes and other conduits necessary to transport sewage between the Village and the School site and shall defend the Village against any and all liability related thereto;

 Section 9. The District shall be responsible for the expense of the tap-in fees and all other expenses not specifically delineated herein but associated with the extension of sewer services to the District;

Section 10. It is the intent of this Ordinance that the selective extension of sewer services authorized herein shall be solely for the purpose of and shall be restricted to providing sewer services to the intermediate elementary school to be constructed on the Van Winkle property. Should the District decide in the future to further develop the Van Winkle property and construct additional facilities that require sewer services then the District shall be required to seek additional selective extension of the sewer services from the Village.

 Section 11. Ordinances No. 37-01 and 40-01 are hereby repealed.

Section 12. This Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety and welfare of the Municipality and its inhabitants for the following reasons: (1) OEPA’s position that when sanitary sewers are available that they should be the preferred alternative and should be approved in lieu of alternatives such as package plants; (2) OEPA’s policy to deny on-site systems or package plants when sanitary sewers are available; (3) OEPA’s statement that a package plant would be an unnecessary burden on the District and would result in the degradation of the waters of the State; (4) that the degradation of the waters and streams in the Granville area constitutes an immediate and unacceptable threat of environmental harm to the Village and its surrounding townships; and (5) that failure to immediately reach a decision regarding the selective extension of the Village’s sewer services could result in the school site not being ready for the academic year 2002- 2003, thereby resulting in over-crowded classrooms for children in the existing schools. 

Ordinance 40-01

 

WHEREAS, the Granville Exempted Village School District Board of Education (“the District”) has determined that, as a result of increased enrollment, the construction of a new intermediate grade 4, 5 & 6 school is necessary (“the new school”); and

WHEREAS, the District decided to construct the new school on 184 acres located between Burg Street and Loudon Street in the Northern portion of Granville Township, on property known as the Van Winkle property (“Van Winkle property”); and

WHEREAS, the District requested that the Village provide sewer services to the Van Winkle property; and

WHEREAS, on November 7, 2001, pursuant to the District’s second request, Village Council passed Ordinance No. 37-01 granting the School District the sewer extension for the reasons stated in that ordinance; and

WHEREAS, Ordinance No. 37-01 conditioned the sewer extension, in part, on the District making the road it planned to construct between Burg Street and Loudon Street a public road versus a private road (such road having been recommended to the Village in the traffic study commissioned by the Village and submitted by the Parsons Transportation Group, a Traffic-engineering firm, on March 22, 2001, as the way for the Village to protect its streets from the large increase in traffic the new school will create); and

WHEREAS, the Village Council has the responsibility of maintaining the Village streets and minimizing taxpayer expense in such maintenance by planning for and regulating, where possible, the amount of traffic on the streets; and

WHEREAS following the November 7, 2001 meeting and the passage of Ordinance No. 37-01, school officials made public statements expressing doubts about their ability to meet Council’s request for a public road, primarily because of cost; and

WHEREAS, an example of the District’s concern on costs was expressed in the Thursday, November 15, 2001 edition of the Granville Sentinel, whereby it was reported that: “If the road were built to county engineering standards with curb, gutters, and possibly sidewalks, it would cost $1 million, according to the school district’s engineering consultant, ADR & Associates of Newark;” and WHEREAS, following those statements by the District, Council learned that the road that the District plans to construct already meets County requirements for a public road and, therefore, should not result in additional costs to the District; and

WHEREAS, by making the road a public road the District can save substantial sums for maintenance and repair as the Township, County, and/or Village would be responsible for all these costs; and

WHEREAS, Council wishes to clarify its position and re- state its willingness to work with the District to reach an agreement on the sewer extension. 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED, by the Council of Granville, Ohio, a majority of the elected members concurring that:

Section 1: The Village restates its position that the road between Burg Street and Loudon Street be a public road. However, the Village clarifies that the District’s plan to construct a 24-foot road is the type of road the Village anticipated in its original ordinance, Ordinance 37-01, and, to the Village’s understanding, such road satisfies the County’s standards for a public road. The Village merely requests that the road the District already plans to construct be deemed a public road;

Section 2: To the extent that the road already planned by the District does not meet the County standards in either road width or road construction (e.g. type of materials, thickness, etc.), the Village is willing to negotiate with the District and share in the additional costs, if any;

Section 3: If the District joins the new school and the Van Winkle property to the Village as anticipated by Ordinance No. 37-01, and if the road is built to public standards as anticipated in Sections 1 and 2 above, the Village will accept maintenance responsibility for the road, just as it does for any other public road, thereby saving the District substantial sums over the life time of the road;

Section 4: The Village is willing to negotiate further any details as to the size or location of the road easement, including issues such as whether the road is centered in the easement or whether the easement is offset to one side of the road;

Section 5: In addition, to demonstrate its good faith and willingness to reach a mutually acceptable resolution with the District, the Village makes the following offer: If the District is successful in joining the new school and Van Winkle property to the Village as anticipated by Ordinance No. 37-01, and if the road already planned is made a public road as anticipated by Ordinance No. 37-01, the Village will waive the tap-in fee for the sewer extension;

Section 6: This Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety and welfare of the Municipality and its inhabitants for the following reasons: (1) OEPA’s position that when sanitary sewers are available that they are the preferred alternative to on-site package plants; (2) OEPA’s policy to deny on-site systems or package plants when sanitary sewers are available; (3) OEPA’s conclusion that an on-site package plant would be an unnecessary burden on the District and would result in the degradation of the waters of the State; (4) that the degradation of the waters and streams in the Granville area constitutes an immediate and unacceptable threat of environmental harm to the Village and its surrounding townships; and (5) that failure to immediately approve the selective extension of the Village’s sewer services could result in the school site not being ready for the academic year 2002-2003, thereby resulting in over-crowded classrooms for children in the existing schools.

Ordinance 37-01

 WHEREAS, the Granville Exempted Village School District Board of Education (“the District”) has determined that, as a result of increased enrollment, the construction of a new intermediate grade 4, 5 & 6 school is necessary (“the new school”); and

 WHEREAS, the District has decided to construct the new school on 184 acres located between Burg Street and Loudon Street in the Northern portion of Granville Township, on property known as the Van Winkle property (“Van Winkle property”); and

 WHEREAS, the Van Winkle property is located outside of the corporate boundaries of the Village of Granville (“Village”); and 

WHEREAS, the Village of Granville has a long established policy to deny new water and sewer utility services to properties or structures located outside the corporate boundaries of the Village to control and shape growth with an emphasis on preserving farmland, open space, natural land features and the rural atmosphere that is unique to the Village, and it hereby restates that policy (“policy”); and

WHEREAS, the District previously requested water and sewer services from the Village before the School District purchased the Van Winkle property, but the District wanted the utilities without joining the new school or the Van Winkle property to the Village via an annexation; and

WHEREAS, on January 17, 2001, the Granville Village Council (“Village Council”) denied the District’s request for water and sewer services; and

WHEREAS, the Village denied the water and sewer services for several reasons, including: (1) the Village’s longstanding policy of not extending utilities beyond its borders; (2) the Village’s concern that an extension of utilities without annexation might lead to unwanted residential growth; (3) the Village’s interpretation of the Village-Granville Township 1998 Comprehensive Plan and, specifically, the Plan’s stated goal of protecting and preserving agricultural land (the Van Winkle property was agricultural land); (4) the Village’s concern that a new school at the Van Winkle property could create a significant traffic burden on Village streets; (5) the Village’s recognition that there are no alternate roads to transport students from the southern and eastern portions of the Township to the new school; (6) the Village’s concern that the new school site did not lend itself to pedestrian and bike traffic and the School District had made no commitment to construct a bike path to the new school; and (7) the Village’s belief that the new school would be best protected by the Village police (the other schools in the Granville Exempted School District are protected by the Village police); and

WHEREAS, the OEPA expressly stated to the School District on February 27, 2001 that its communication did “not constitute an approval” for any on-site wastewater treatment system; and

WHEREAS, the District began construction of the new school despite the Village Council’s denial of utilities and before securing a permit to install an on-site sewer treatment plant from the OEPA; and

WHEREAS, while in the middle of the construction process, the School Board learned that the OEPA is unwilling to approve an on-site sewer treatment plant on the Van Winkle property because of environmental pollution risks; and

WHEREAS, the OEPA believes that, when sanitary sewers are available (e.g., from local municipalities such as the Village), sanitary sewers should be the preferred alternative and should be approved in lieu of alternatives such as on-site package plants; and

WHEREAS, even though the OEPA cannot, by law, force the Village to extend water and sewer services, the Village nevertheless is sensitive to the OEPA’s concerns and would like to assist the OEPA in meeting its goals; and 

WHEREAS, the Village recognizes the substantial public funds which have already been expended on the Van Winkle property and in the new school (land purchase, initial construction, and soil stabilization), and the Village does not want these public resources to be wasted because of the lack of available sewer utilities; and

WHEREAS, for a second time, the District has requested that the Village provide sewer services to the Van Winkle property and the Village, in an effort to assist the District in carrying out its public duties and to ensure the continued success of the Granville students, hereby finds and determines that it is in the best interest of the Village to make a limited exception to the above mentioned policy and provide the surplus sewer services to the District, notwithstanding its established policy not to do so; and

WHEREAS, as further consideration for the foregoing, the District agrees to place deed restrictions on the Van Winkle property containing the new school site so that the Van Winkle property will only be used for school purposes in the future.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED, by the Council of Granville, Ohio, a majority of the elected members concurring that:

Section 1: The Village has previously stated its policy of not providing surplus utility services to any property outside of the boundaries of the Village, and it hereby restates that policy.
