City Council approves easements, expansions

St. Marys City Council has approved the termination of a 16-foot land and water line easement which cuts through Mersen property.City Manager Dave Greene explained the city has a 1.1-acre tract of land, also known as Environmental Drive, on which they built a road. For this reason, as far as the city is concerned, they do not need the water line easement, which is on Mersen's property, he said.Greene said the water line that is on Environmental Drive comes in from Brusselles Street and is also is fed from the back, which will prevent water being cut off from the city's maintenance building and the Elk County Humane Society. There are no additional taps off the water line to any residential customers.
