All Street Cuts made in asphaltic or concrete pavement shall be sawed or jackhammered before digging. These cuts shall be held to the minimum width as necessary for the particular project without sacrificing any type of required safety precautions and / or procedures. Anyone making a street cut will be expected to exercise sound judgment in order to prevent unnecessary damage to city streets, sidewalks, curb and gutters, and alleys.
All those working in the street and/or working in a city right-of-way, easement, or alley are required to be licensed as an Excavator with the City. In most instances, an Excavation permit would be required as well. Contractor Licenses and Excavation permits are issued at the Public Works Department.
