Permits and Regulations


The Public Works Department / Engineering Department requires that an opening and/or occupancy permit be applied for in the Engineering Department for all work within the public way (roadway or sidewalk excavation) and for any work (repairs, modifications or new connections) to public utilities (water, sewer, drain) either on the street or private property. Contractors must be appropriately insured and bonded to Town Standards and must complete work and restore areas to Town standards. The division maintains a listing of all contractors who are properly insured and bonded and whom have successfully completed work. Click here to access this list.

All general permit applications* (which you can find here) must be accompanied by a sketch (or full size plan) showing the location of the proposed work and a Dig Safe number (if applicable).
