Commission Agenda Item No. 7
Presenter:  Corky Kuhlmann

Action
Easement Acquisition – Bastrop County
Buescher State Park
May 27, 2010

I. Executive Summary:  Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is in negotiations with a private landowner for the acquisition of a wastewater utility easement at Buescher State Park (Park).

II. Discussion:  TPWD staff is currently in negotiations with a private landowner to acquire a Utility Easement across a portion of his property.  This easement will allow for the connection of the Park’s sewer system to the City of Smithville’s Municipal Wastewater System, consistent with our goal to connect to municipal water and wastewater systems whenever possible and feasible.  This connection will result in a huge savings to the Park.

III. Recommendation:  Staff recommends the Commission adopt the following motion:
“The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission authorizes the Executive Director to take all necessary steps to acquire a Utility Easement to facilitate the connection between Buescher State Park and the City of Smithville’s Municipal Wastewater System.”
