About Utility permits:
A utility permit is required for construction, maintainance, and/or repair of utilities within a County Highway's right of way. It helps the permitting authority manage the highway right of way corridor for the most efficient use of space, helps the coordination of facilities within, and ensures proper restoration. Permit fees depend on the scope of work that will be occurring.
How to apply:
• Detailed plan of proposed installation
• Supporting documents
• Important: No payment is submitted until after your plan is reviewed; permit fee is due prior to issuance of permit.
