Any work in the City right-of-way requires inspections with a timely request. Two inspections are performed on these permits: Street Excavation, Sidewalk and Driveway. The first inspection is either the gravel or cold patch, or sidewalk/driveway forms. The second inspection is the asphalt patch or finish sidewalk/driveway. Street Excavation requires a "patching date" for the annual re-inspection of the asphalt patch. Sewer Tap permits may incorporate a Street Excavation permit depending upon the location of the public sewer line.
Permit Process: An Engineering Application is submitted along with civil designs for the project. A deposit is made. Our Engineering Department reviews and makes comments upon submitted design. A final corrected civil design is submitted, stamped, and issued with Building Permit. Expenses related to the review, inspection, etc. are taken from the deposit. Any charges above and beyond this deposit will be billed to the customer. Our Finance Department accepts cash, money order, check, or in-person card payment.
