Street Opening Permits are used by contractors and/or property owners for permission to work in the City right-of-way for a variety of projects. Typically the right-of-way extends to and includes the sidewalk, if one is present. Because the right-of-way is considered City property a permit must be applied for.
Typical right-of-way work includes:
Private Water lines
Private Sewer lines
