Sec. 35-55. Inspection fee; deposit.
Before any permit shall be issued under the provisions of this article, the applicant therefor shall deposit with the city an inspection fee in the amount of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for each permit applicable to an area not exceeding ten (10) square feet plus fifty cents ($0.50) for each square foot in excess thereof. These fees are subject to annual review and revision by the city council. If in the opinion of the city engineer a permit requires more than the usual routine administrative and inspection time, the utility shall be billed for all costs associated with this permit at a cost plus an overhead rate.
To ensure the restoration of the excavated area (for a minimum of one (1) year), the applicant shall also submit a bond, certified check, or other method of surety as approved by the city attorney. The amount of said bond, certified check, or surety shall be determined by the city engineer or such other person or persons as the city may from time to time designate. (Code 1959, § 30-3; Ord. of 8-8-78; Ord. No. O-84-141, § 1, 6-12-84; eff. 7-1-84; Ord. No. O-88-062, § 1, 3-22-88, eff. 7-1-88; Ord. No. O-92-144, 5-12-92)
