(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 159491, 162574 and 184957, effective November 25, 2011.) 

A.  Upon the filing of an application under Section 17.60.030 the Director of the Bureau of Transportation will designate the portion of space and location within the street area or public use easement designated in Section 17.60.010 to be used by the applicant.  No part or parts of street area shall be used except as designated by the Director of the Bureau of Transportation.

B.  No facilities shall be constructed to prevent the City from constructing sewers, grading, paving, repairing and/or altering any Street; laying down, repairing or removing water mains; or constructing or establishing any other public work or improvement. All such work shall be done, so as not to injure or prevent the unrestricted use and operation of the Permittee’s system. However, if any portion of the Permittee’s system interferes with the construction or repair of any street or public improvement, including construction, repair or removal of a sewer or water main, the City may direct the Permittee to relocate as provided in Section 17.56.060.
