(if not already on file with the City of Canyon)
GENERAL: The receiver of this permit expressly agrees to do all work subject to approval of the Public
Works Department, in accordance with the City of Canyon Standard Specifications, Code of Ordinances
and in accordance with all conditions and regulations herein (specifically Chapter 157, City of Canyon
Code of Ordinances). Concepts and contents of approved drawing(s) / sketch(s) are to be strictly adhered
to. Any unapproved deviation from the approved drawings or standards will be sufficient cause to have
the work stopped or reconstructed at the expense of the Applicant. The City reserves the right to reject
any application should the City determine that said construction and/or use will present a public health or
safety issue or interfere with current or future use of the right of way or is an inappropriate use of the
applied for location. A copy of the permit is required on the job site at all times.
EXCAVATIONS: It is the intent of the City to prevent or minimize excavations that remain open during the
overnight hours. All excavations that must remain open after sundown must be approved by the Public
Works Department and be properly marked / barricaded according to approved trench safety and traffic
control measures. Approval for overnight, planned, open excavations will not be issued after 3:00 P.M. of
the day of the planned opening. Discretionary approval by the City will be used during emergency
situations. Excavations shall be properly backfilled in the event that approval is not granted or is not
requested prior to the above deadline. No public or private driveways will be allowed to remain blocked
overnight, unless agreed to by the affected parties. Excavated material and earth must be stored in a safe
manner such that there is minimal disruption to the flow of traffic. Extra or surplus material shall be
removed from the right-of-way within 48 hours after completion of the work. Any violation of these
conditions will be deemed sufficient cause to refuse further permits to the party or parties violating same,
and all repairs deemed necessary will be made by the City. The costs of the repairs will be charged to the
party or parties to whom the permit was issued, and all further applications for permits will be refused until
payment of these charges is received.
EXCAVATION IN PAVED AREAS: One half of the roadway must be kept open to traffic at all times and
under all conditions, unless a City approved street closure / traffic control plan is in place. Any pavement
removed will be temporarily restored immediately, so that full traffic flow may be restored overnight. The
pavement shall be permanently repaired within ten (10) days by the party, or parties making the
pavement cut. Pavement repairs for street excavations shall be made as shown in the Standard Details
and Standard Specifications, available on the City’s Engineering Division Website (www.canyontx.com).
Contractors making such repairs shall be responsible for maintenance of said pavement patches during
the warranty period discussed above. Temporary pavement patches may remain in place for extended
periods, only due to inclement weather (winter), until weather suitable for paving occurs. All pavement
repairs are subject to approval of the Public Works Department or the City Engineer.
LANDSCAPED AREAS: All grass, lawns, shrubbery and other landscaping materials must be carefully
protected or removed and, upon completion of the work, shall be repaired / replaced to a condition equal
to or better than was existing prior to any construction. All landscaping repairs must be approved by the
Public Works Department or the City Engineer prior to final acceptance.
LOCATE REQUIREMENTS: In order to reduce the disruption and cost of utility damages occurring in the
City’s right of way and easements, the Applicant shall prevent damages to existing utilities caused by his
work through field verification of the existing utilities. In any case, whether open excavation or through
trenchless technologies, verification must be performed prior to the commencement of the Applicant’s
work. The Applicant shall verify the location of existing utilities as needed to avoid contact. Existing
utilities shall be exposed to confirm location and prevent conflicts with the proposed project construction.
The Applicant shall be held liable for damages caused to the City’s utilities / infrastructure and the existing
facilities of other utility companies.
UTILITY RELOCATION: In the event that a City utility relocation is required, or should the City require
relocation to accommodate any improvements or construction involving the right of way, the Applicant
and the utility owner shall assume responsibility and incur the associated costs of relocating the City’s
utility. The Applicant and utility owner shall cooperate fully with the City if a utility relocation is required by
the City and shall provide all information and perform all relocation in an expeditious manner so as to
avoid any delays to City services or the permitted project.
OBSTRUCTIONS: Regardless of the right of way width, unnecessary above ground obstructions will be
prohibited in the public right of way. Necessary items such as mailboxes, City approved landscaping
materials, traffic / street signage and other utility facilities (pedestals, markers, etc.) will be allowed and
subject to City approval prior to construction. Any intended, potential obstructions shall be indicated on
the plans / sketches submitted with the permit application.
APPROVAL / PERMITS FROM OTHER AGENCIES: This permit, when granted by the City of Canyon,
in no way releases the Applicant from their responsibility to notify and/or conform to the regulations /
requirements of other agencies or companies affected by this construction, including but not limited to
obtaining required permits or permission to operate at this location. Failure to obtain the proper permits
and /or permission from other entities will be grounds for rejection of this permit application.
