Excavating in the Town Right-of-Way Requires Permit
Section 17-47 of the Revised Ordinances for the Town of North Kingstown states that: 'No person shall excavate or dig into any portion of any of the public highways of the town without having first obtained the special permit mentioned in section 17-48'.
Per Sec. 17-48, the director of public works may at any time issue a special permit (Excavation Permit) authorizing any person to excavate or dig into the public highways of the town and requires that a bond of not less than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) be posted prior to the issuance of any such permit. Written applications for Excavation Permits are to be filed with the Engineering Division which gives preliminary approval, sets the bond amount, and sets the inspection costs for the requested excavation. The application is then forwarded to the Director for his approval and the applicant is notified when approved. The permit is then issued once the inspection costs are paid and the bond is placed on file with the Town.
