A. Applications for encroachment permits may be approved, conditionally approved or denied. When the Town Engineer finds that the application is in accordance with the requirements of this article, he shall issue a permit for the encroachment, attaching such conditions as are necessary for the health, safety and welfare of the public and for the protection of the Town. If the Town Engineer finds the application is in conflict with the provisions of this article, the permit shall be denied and the applicant given written reason for the denial. No permit is valid unless signed by the Town Engineer or his designee. Encroachment permits shall be issued only to the person making application therefore and may not be assigned to another person by the permittee. If any permittee assigns his permit to another, the permit shall be void. The contractor directly responsible for the trench backfill and pavement replacement shall obtain and sign for the permit. General contractors may not apply for permits on behalf of subcontractors.
B. A permit to work in the right-of-way is not authorization to remove pavement, unless the street cut is specified in the permit. Street cuts made without prior approval are subject to having the entire street overlaid to a length specified by the Town Engineer at the contractor’s expense.
