Excavation Permit

An Excavation Permit is required for trenching, digging, boring, tunneling, drilling, potholing, jacking of conduit or pipes, or placement of a facility or structure in the public right-of-way. Excavation Permits are not "over-the-counter" as they require review by multiple departments. Please submit a completed application along with the below required documents to the Public Works Counter, City Hall, Room 113.
