Greg Scoles, City Administrator

Synopsis: The City has acquired the property located at 457 Siskiyou Blvd., previously known as the Blue Mountain Cafe, as part of the expansion project for the new fire station. Two heating oil underground tanks were located on this property, and have been removed and decommissioned in accordance with Department of Environmental Quality requirements. One of these tanks was located on the eastern property line between the newly acquired City property and 505 Siskiyou Blvd., which is also known as the E.V. Carter House. The Carter property contains an access easement to the heating oil tank that previously existed on what is now City property. The property is being sold and the prospective buyer desires to have the easement restriction removed from the deed.
Recommendation: Staff recommends that Council approve the quitclaim deed to remove the easement in question.
Fiscal Impact: None.
Background: In preparation for fire station construction sitework at 455 and 457 Siskiyou Bivd'" underground x-ray scanning was completed on the two parcels in June 2001. Data collected revealed the existence of two old underground fuel storage tanks. These tanks are believed t0 have been originally installed in connection with heating oil furnaces used in an apartment building and restaurant that had historically occupied the property. The remaining contents of both tanks were pumped out, as well as the removal of adjacent soils, and transported to DW Creek Land Fill for disposal under DEQ guidelines. The City received a certification from DEQ stipulating that all applicable regulations had been fully complied with and that the tanks had been properly decommissioned. The access easement attached to the property at 505 Siskiyou remains to be removed through Council action.
