The Public Works Department is responsible for construction activity within the City's public rights-of-way. Permits are issued and inspected to ensure safety and quality are met for public safety.  Encroachment Permits are issued for all types of construction in the public right-of-way and are different and separate from Building Permits.  Temporary Street and Sidewalk Closure permits are issued for placing dumpsters, cranes, and / or reserving parking for your construction activities.  Any construction within City property must have a state licensed contractor and an Encroachment Permit prior to performing any work.  Fees charged for permits are from the City's Fee Schedule and are charged based on your scope of work.
