  • Chapter 133 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DIVISION OF CAPITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE TO CONVEY CERTAIN EASEMENTS TO THE CITY OF GARDNER.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


SECTION 1. The commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance may grant easements on a certain parcel of land located on the campus of Mount Wachusett Community College in the city of Gardner to the city of Gardner for sewer purposes. The easements are shown on a construction drawing plan titled "Proposed Sewer Main, Eaton Street, Gardner, MA" designed by Arthur E. Young, P.E. City Engineer, dated August, 2000, which is on file in the engineering department of the city. The easements would allow the city and its department of public works, sewer division and its agents the right to enter upon college property owned or controlled by Mount Wachusett Community College for the purpose of constructing, maintaining and repairing 640 feet, more or less, of 8" PVC sanitary sewer main of the location and depths shown on the plan. In lieu of full and fair market value, the city of Gardner shall assume full ownership and maintenance of approximately 1,800 feet of existing sanitary sewer mains on property owned or controlled by the college, from a manhole near Green street to the end manhole in front of the college's fitness & wellness center.

SECTION 2. The city of Gardner department of public works, or its contractor, shall be responsible for any cost for appraisals, surveys and all other expenses and liabilities relating to the granting and exercise of the easements.

SECTION 3. Any deed conveyed by or on behalf of the commonwealth regarding the easements described in section 1 shall limit the use of the easements to installation, construction, operation and maintenance of sewer lines. If the purposes described in section 1 are not complied with, easements authorized in section 1 may revert to the commonwealth under such terms and conditions, as the commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance may prescribe.
