The Engineering Department is responsible for reviewing and inspecting all construction that is performed within the City right-of-way. The right-of-way is generally identified as the area along a public street that lies between the sidewalk and the street. Alleys are also considered a City right-of-way. The actual width of a right-of-way varies considerably throughout the community, so it is best to contact the Engineering Department to determine the right-of-way width on a particular street or alley.
Permits are required for work that will occur in the city right-of-way.
Typical projects that require a permit include, but are not limited to, water or sewer line replacement, driveway approaches, storm sewer projects, sidewalk construction, and tree planting.
A water permit is required for the installation or replacement of a water service, or for the purchase of a new or replacement water meter.
Anyone working within the City right-of-way is required to obtain a permit from the Public Works office and provide proof of insurance
Permits can be obtained and paid for online by emailing email@example.com, or in person at the Division of Public Works office at City Hall, 320 W. Broadway Street.
The Engineering Department must be contacted to inspect the work before it is completed.
If work is performed in the right-of-way without a permit or inspection, penalties will be assessed to the property owner or contactor.
