Pursuant to Village Code 8-1A-2, it is unlawful to tunnel under or make any excavation in any street, alley or other public place in the village or without having obtained a permit. Further, under Village Code 8-1E-3, damage to any right of way improvement is prohibited. As such, the Village requires obtaining a utility permit for excavation or aerial work within its right of way. The Utility Permit Application requires the payment of a $100 fee.
**NEW** Electronic Filing for a Utility Permit is now available
The Village's new Building Department Portal includes the ability to apply for a utility permit online (for aerial or excavation within the Village's right of way.
