Sec. 20-2-8. Term for completion of work.

The permittee shall complete the work or use authorized by a permit issued pursuant to this article within thirty days from the date of issuance unless a different time limit is specified in the permit. Should the permittee be unable to complete the work before the permit expires, a time extension may be granted by the director of public works. It shall be the permittee’s responsibility to notify the city in writing of the reason for the delay. If a time extension is justified, the extension will be noted on the permit. Failure to obtain an extension shall require the permittee to make application for a new permit. Any work done without a valid permit will require a special field investigation and the payment of a field investigation fee. If at any time the director of public works finds that the delay in the prosecution of completion of the work or use authorized is due to lack of diligence on the part of the permittee, he may revoke the permit and restore the right-of-way or watercourse to its former condition. The
permittee shall reimburse the city for all expenses incurred by the director of public works in restoring the right-of-way or watercourse. (Ord. No. 1201, § 2 (part).)
