Sec. 24.1-23. Easements.
Easements of twenty (20) feet minimum width shall be provided for water, sewer and storm drainage in the subdivision. Such easements shall be kept free of permanent structures and whenever possible shall be located adjacent to property lines. Such easements shall be laid out so as to ensure continuity of the utilities from block to block and to adjacent property. In situations when pipes exceeding thirty-six (36) inches in diameter and or pipes exceeding eight (8) feet in depth are necessary, an additional ten (10) feet of easement width may be required. Easements shall be provided for electric, telephone, cable television and natural gas of sufficient width and location as determined by the appropriate utility company.
Nothing in this section is intended to prohibit the placement of public utilities within dedicated rights-of-way. Placement of private water and sewer lines is prohibited in the public right-of-way. The city planner may require that easements for drainage through adjoining property be provided by the subdivider. (Ord. No. O-10-034, 4-27-10, eff. 7-1-10)
