A. All improvements in the public right-of-way shall be constructed under the inspection and approval of the Town Engineer. Construction shall not commence until the final plat is recorded and permits have been issued for such construction. Work shall not be discontinued or suspended without at least a 15 day notification to, and authorization by, the Town Engineer. Failure of such action may require compensation to the Town for any costs incurred by the Town for inspection and testing personnel. Any resumption of discontinued or suspended work shall be authorized only after a two working day notification to the Town Engineer.

B. To the maximum extent practical, all underground utilities are to be installed in street rights-of-way or in public utility easements that are located parallel to and abutting street and alley rights-of-way at a distance from the right-of-way not exceeding 12 feet. The Town Council may waive this regulation at their discretion.

C. Such utilities shall be constructed, inspected and approved prior to the surfacing of such streets and alleys. Any excavation in paved or concreted roadways within for first five years after surfacing will require resurfacing of the entire width of the roadway for a length to be determined by the Town Engineer.

D. Beginning subdivision improvements without Town approval is a violation of this ordinance and could result in, but not limited to, the immediate project-wide stop work orders. Furthermore, violations of this ordinance are violations of The Fountain Hills Town Code, and are subject to ARTICLE 1-8 PENALTY, paragraph A., which states:

Any person found guilty of violating any provisions of this code, except as otherwise provided in this code, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of not to exceed two thousand five hundred dollars or by imprisonment for a period not to exceed six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Each day that a violation continues shall be a separate offense punishable as hereinabove described.
