Public Works Inspections

A permit from the City’s Engineering Division is required whenever work is proposed within public right-of-way or City easement no matter the type of work.

When a permit is obtained, the permittee is required to notify the City’s Public Works Inspection group at least 48 hours prior to any work associated with the permit taking place.
