The Water/Wastewater and Right-of-Way Permits section reviews and approves street cut or excavation permits, and enforces the Street Cut Ordinance which regulates how excavations are made and construction is performed in the City’s Right of Way. We also oversee enforcement of the permits for private construction of utilities within the City’s Right of Way. This section also oversees that the integrity of the streets is maintained and the restoration is performed in compliance with the Street Cut Ordinance.
