Section 9-406 Improvement by Permit.

Whenever the grade of any street has been established, the Council may authorize any person to cut or fill the street in front of such property according to such grade, or to improve the same, or both, as the City Engineer may direct, at the expense of that person. This authority shall not be granted after notice has been given of the Council's intention to improve the street so long as the Council retains jurisdiction for the proposed improvement. In giving this authority, the Council may impose such terms and conditions as it may find appropriate. [New sec. Nov. 8, 1966; am. Nov. 3, 1992.]
