Question: When and why do I have to get a street opening permit?



All proposed projects need a street opening permit when they would disturb any city roads, sidewalks, parking lot, paths or any other surface that would expect to see traffic. The interested party would go to the city’s code enforcement office to receive the application. The project would be reviewed by the police dept. for possible traffic control issues, by code enforcement for their concerns and would be overseen by public services. The completed permit would include all three depts. reps. signature. A surety would be also needed from the contractor doing the work. The work that is done on our city’s property will be guaranteed for a period of two years

The street opening process makes the city aware of work being done on our city’s property. It has to be done in a safe, consistent and correct manner. The permit process insures this.
