Right of Way (ROW) Permit
(Previously Digging Permit)
Any persons needing to excavate into a city right of way (street, alley, blvd, or other city owned property) must obtain a Right of Way Permit. The permit enables the city to track the excavations within its ROW and ensure the quality of these areas as well. The permit fee is $50.00 per excavation up to 400 lineal feet and requires a map (may be hand drawn) to show area of excavation. If excavating into a paved area, the city engineer has patching requirements prepared. For any questions on the ROW permit please contact Tom Callaway at the Public Works Department at 642-1333 or visit us at 625 5th Street up stairs at the first window.
You can print and fill out an application by clicking on the link below or there are forms available at the Public Works Office. The forms must be completed and approved before excavations can begin.
