City officials continue to tweak guidelines for getting a permit to dig in city streets.
The city council recently approved changes to city code regarding excavation permits and right of way permits.
Those changes include restrictions on placing dumpsters on city streets, and also require any person working in a right of way with dump trucks, cement trucks, cranes, pumper trucks and landscaping trucks to get an excavation permit from the city.
The amended guideline does not require a public utility provider doing what is termed as "routine maintenance" within the right-of-way to get a permit.
City officials first addressed the issue of new excavation guidelines and permits in 2010 and have worked to get a fee schedule in place and also bonding requirements as part of that process.
