A. 
Grades to be established. The grade of newly constructed streets, alleys and sidewalks shall be established by the Village Board and the same recorded by the Village Clerk-Treasurer in his/her office. No street, alley or sidewalk shall be worked until the grade thereof is established. In all cases where the grade of sidewalks shall not have been specifically set by ordinance, the sidewalks shall be laid to the established grade of the street. All such grades heretofore established are hereby confirmed.
B. 
New sidewalk grade. Whenever a street shall be improved for the first time or the grade thereof changed and the street improved so as to conform to the new grade, the grading of the sidewalk shall be considered a part of the improvement, shall be let by contract with the other work of improving such street, and the expense thereof shall be provided for and borne in all respects like that of improving the street, but the construction shall be done by the owners of the abutting lots or parcels of land or at their expense as hereinafter provided. Before such construction is commenced by the owners of the abutting lots or parcels of land, the Village Board shall, upon application by the respective owners for a sidewalk grade, cause such sidewalk grade to be established.
No person shall alter the grade of any street, alley, sidewalk or public ground or any part thereof in the Village of Argyle by any means whatsoever unless authorized or instructed to do so by the Village Board or Director of Public Works. All such alterations of grade shall be recorded in the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer.
A. 
Elevation. The grade or elevation of all underground construction shall be a minimum of three feet below the established grade of the street, alley, park, public property or easement. The three feet shall be measured between the top of the established grade and the top of the underground construction.
B. 
Approval of location. The location of any and all such underground construction must have the approval of the Director of Public Works.
C. 
Filing plans. Complete plans for any such construction must be filed with and be approved by the Director of Public Works before construction can begin.
D. 
Inspection. On request of the Director of Public Works, the utility company must provide opportunity for him/her to check any construction before it may be covered.
E. 
Conflict with other utilities. If the grade or elevation herein set for the underground construction of utilities shall, in any instance, conflict with other existing utilities, the utility shall be required to lower the elevation of its underground construction or of the storm sewer, at the election of the Director of Public Works and in accordance with his/her directions and specifications.
F. 
Establishment of grade. At the request of the utility company, the Director of Public Works shall give the utility company an established grade on any streets, alleys, public parks or easements where it proposes to install underground utilities.
G. 
Emergency. In case of an emergency, when immediate action is necessary in order to protect life or property, the utility company may proceed with underground construction, subject to obtaining the approval of such work by the Director of Public Works as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible.
H. 
Restoration of surface. In the event of any such underground construction, the utility company shall leave the surface of the ground or road in the same condition as before said work was commenced, and in the event of its failure so to do, the Village may proceed to place the surface of the ground or street in such condition at the utility company's expense. Such work shall comply with the provisions of §§ 568-6 and 568-7 of this chapter.
I. 
Not relief from obligations. Compliance with this section does not relieve the utility company from any responsibility of any kind whatsoever by reason of the widening of the travelway or any other improvements which may become necessary, nor does it relieve it from any liability of any kind or nature whatsoever. Compliance with this section shall not relieve the utility company from the responsibility or obligation of removing, relocating or moving any of its mains, pipes or property due to the opening, widening or improving of streets, or due to any other changes which may occur by reason of which such moving, relocation or removing may be necessary.
[Adopted 12-7-2005 as Title 6, Ch. 2, of the 2005 Village Code]
No owner or occupant shall allow the sidewalk abutting on his/her premises to be littered with rubbish or dirt. If such owner or occupant shall refuse or fail to remove any such rubbish or dirt when notified to do so by the Village Board or its designee, the Village Board or its designee may cause the same to be done and report the cost thereof to the Village Clerk-Treasurer, who shall spread the cost on the tax roll as a special tax against the premises pursuant to § 66.0627, Wis. Stats., or such cost may be recovered in an action against the owner or occupant.
A. 
Board may order. The Village Board may determine that sidewalks or curb and gutter may be constructed, laid, rebuilt or repaired along or upon any public street, right-of-way or highway within the Village of Argyle. The Village Board may determine or change the width or grade of any street or sidewalk.
B. 
Cost of sidewalks.
(1) 
New subdivision sidewalks. Sidewalks required in new subdivisions and developments shall be paid for by the land divider pursuant to Chapter 700 of this Code. New sidewalks constructed in existing areas of the Village shall be paid for by adjacent property owners.
(2) 
Sidewalk repair and reconstruction. Any time the Village rebuilds or reconstructs sidewalks in an existing neighborhood, or orders a sidewalk to be constructed in an existing neighborhood, the cost of such work shall be paid 50% by the Village and 50% by the adjacent property owner. Payment of special assessments shall be permitted over three years.
(3) 
Assessment a lien. Any special assessments under this section shall remain a lien on the premises until paid in full and shall be entered on the tax roll as a special tax as above provided, and failure to pay when due shall result in the whole balance being immediately due and payable and collectible as a delinquent tax against the above-described property and that all proceedings in relation to the collection, return and sale of the property for delinquent real estate taxes shall apply to such special assessment.
C. 
Permit required. No person shall hereafter lay, remove, replace or repair any public sidewalk within the Village of Argyle unless he/she is under contract with the Village to do such work or has obtained a permit therefor from the Clerk-Treasurer or Director of Public Works at least two days before work is proposed to be undertaken. A fee as prescribed from time to time by resolution of the Village Board shall be charged for such permit.[1]

Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. III).
D. 
Standard specifications for sidewalk.
(1) 
General.
(a) 
All sidewalks shall be constructed of masonry meeting Wisconsin Department of Transportation standard specifications, unless otherwise specified in this section.
(b) 
Concrete sidewalk construction shall meet the specifications and provisions set forth in this section and shall be constructed in locations and to line and grade as established by the Village. All sidewalks constructed in the Village shall conform to the line and grade established by the ordinances or resolutions of the Village. Where no grade has been established as ascertained by the records, the Village Engineer shall prepare and report a grade for the approval of the Village Board; and when the same has been established, the Village Engineer shall stake out the sidewalk as ordered by the Village Board. No sidewalk shall be laid under the provisions of this section until a grade therefor has been established by the Village Board.
(2) 
Subgrade. All earth, dirt and material shall be removed to a depth not less than eight inches, 10 inches across private driveways, below the grade line; and the space shall be filled with crushed stone, sand or gravel. The base shall be left four inches thick after being tamped, with the stone or gravel to be not larger than 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and to be free from dirt, dust and foreign matter. Soft, porous and unsuitable subgrade material shall be removed and replaced with sand, gravel, or other satisfactory material, and the subgrade shall be thoroughly and uniformly compacted and moistened immediately before the concrete is placed. On embankments, the subgrade shall extend at least one foot beyond each edge of the sidewalk.
(3) 
Concrete. The minimum quantity of cement per cubic yard shall be six ninety-four-pound sacks. Concrete shall be mixed for at least one minute. Gravel shall be of good quality and washed. Concrete shall test 2,000 pounds compression in 28 days. Bituminous sidewalks are prohibited.
(4) 
Forming. Concrete shall be placed in straight forms of wood or metal of sufficient strength to resist springing, tipping or other displacement during the process of depositing and consolidating the concrete. Concrete shall be placed in the forms on a moist subgrade, deposited just above the finished grade and consolidated and spaded sufficiently to bring the mortar to the surface and to prevent honeycombing. It shall then be struck off level with the top of the forms and finished with wooden flats. Forms shall be securely fastened, staked, braced and held firmly to required line and shall be sufficiently tight to prevent leakage of mortar, and all forms shall remain in place for 24 hours after pour.
(5) 
Jointing, floating and finishing. Soon after screening and while the concrete is still plastic, the surface shall be floated with wood, cork or metal floats or by a finishing machine. At all places where the sidewalk intersects another sidewalk or curbline, a one-half-inch expansion joint shall be placed. Transverse expansion joints, 1/2 inch thick and four inches wide and five feet long, of premolded material shall be located every 30 feet. Sidewalks must be marked off to make blocks five-foot square and be at right angles to the parallel lines. Any new sidewalk adjoining an old sidewalk or a sidewalk which abuts curb and gutter shall have one-half-inch by four-inch expansion joints of premolded material.
(6) 
Slope.
(a) 
All forms must be approved by the Director of Public Works or other inspector designated by the Director of Public Works before concrete is poured. To provide adequate drainage, the sidewalk shall slope toward the curb at a minimum rate of 1/2 inch per foot of width of sidewalk. All joints and edges shall be finished with a one-fourth-inch radius edging tool.
(b) 
In cases where the grade exceeds 15%, steps or special construction shall be required to fit the existing conditions. Such details shall be prepared by the Village Engineer and approved by the Village Board before construction of the walk is started.
(c) 
Sidewalks shall be constructed within the limits of the street, and unless otherwise specifically indicated, there shall be a one-foot strip of street property left between the property line and the edge of the sidewalk.
(7) 
Width and thickness.
(a) 
Residential walks shall be four or five feet in width, as determined by the Director of Public Works, laid six inches outside property line, but not less than four inches in thickness, except within driveway approaches where the minimum thickness shall be six inches. In the alternative, the Village Board may direct that reconstructed sidewalks match the width of existing adjacent sidewalks.
(b) 
Sidewalks in front of commercial or industrial establishments shall be not less than eight feet in width, or as otherwise established by the Village Board, and five inches in thickness, except within driveway approaches where the minimum thickness shall be seven inches.
(8) 
Finishing. The concrete shall be struck off true to grade, finished smooth and given a broom finish. All edges shall be rounded. No tool marks shall be left on exposed surfaces. In case of rain, the walk shall be covered to protect the surface from being damaged. Walks shall be kept free from all traffic at normal temperatures for 48 hours and in cold weather (below 50° F.) for 96 hours. No concrete shall be poured when the temperature may be expected to fall below 35° F. in any seventy-two-hour period or upon frozen subgrade.
(9) 
Curing and drying. As soon as any of the concrete work hereinbefore mentioned has been finished and hardened sufficiently to prevent excessive marring of the surface, it shall be cured and protected against rapid drying. Failure to comply with this requirement shall be deemed sufficient cause for suspension of the work. Curing shall be accomplished by the "impervious coating," "wet fabric" or "paper" methods. For impervious coating or membrane curing, only those materials meeting requirements of ASTM Specification C156-44T, "Method of Test for Efficiency of Materials for Curing Concrete," shall be used. Said specifications are hereby adopted by reference as if fully set forth herein.
(10) 
Cold weather requirements. When the temperature is less than 40° F., all concrete placed in the forms shall have a temperature between 50° F. and 70° F. and shall meet the requirements as per Wisconsin Department of Transportation specifications for cold weather concrete.
(11) 
Variances.
(a) 
Location. Where the location of a sidewalk in accordance with the specifications established herein would conflict with the location of trees or the root systems thereof, a written variance to the specifications may be issued by the Director of Public Works permitting the sidewalk to be located so as to eliminate or reduce such conflict. No variance shall be issued if the public safety or welfare would be adversely affected thereby. No fee shall be charged for such variance.
(b) 
Material. Where the property owner desires to use nonstandard materials such as brick, aggregate or cobblestone in the construction of a sidewalk, a written variance to the specifications established herein may be issued by the Village Board to permit the use of such nonstandard material. No variance shall be granted for any portion of a sidewalk which crosses or is part of a driveway, nor shall a variance be granted if the public safety or welfare would be adversely affected thereby. A condition of the granting of a variance under this subparagraph shall be the execution and recording of an indemnity agreement running with the land, binding the property owner, his/her successors and assigns and holding the Village harmless from any liability, loss or damage resulting from the use of such nonstandard materials. An application fee as prescribed from time to time by resolution of the Village Board shall be paid at the time of applying for the variance.[2]

A. 
Frozen ground. No openings in the streets, alleys, sidewalks or public ways shall be permitted between November 15 and April 1 except where it is determined by the Village Board or its designee to be an emergency excavation.
B. 
Protection of public.
(1) 
Every opening and excavation shall be enclosed with sufficient barriers, signing and such other traffic control devices as may be required by the Village Board or its designee, and in accordance with Section VI of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Sufficient warning lights shall be kept on from sunrise to sunset. No open-flame warning devices shall be used. Except by special permission from the Director of Public Works, no trench shall be excavated more than 250 feet in advance of pipe or conduit laying nor left unfilled more than 500 feet from where pipe or conduit has been laid.
(2) 
All necessary precautions shall be taken to guard the public effectively from accidents or damage to persons or property through the period of the work. Each person making such opening shall be held liable for all damages, including costs incurred by the Village in defending any action brought against it for damages, as well as cost of any appeal, that may result from the neglect by such person or his/her employees of any necessary precaution against injury or damage to persons, vehicles or property of any kind.
(3) 
Unless otherwise approved, a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction shall be provided. Every effort shall be made on the part of the permittee to provide reasonable access to all properties adjacent to his/her project. In the event traffic is limited to less than one lane in each direction, a flagman or temporary traffic control signal shall be provided so as to safely cycle traffic in each direction past the work area.
(4) 
The permittee shall perform the work in such a manner so as not to disrupt the flow of traffic in the area or endanger the safety of workmen or passersby. It shall be the responsibility of the permittee to prevent traffic backup during construction operation. The permittee shall notify the Director of Public Works 24 hours prior to commencement of excavation of the location and extent of the excavation, unless the excavation is an emergency excavation as identified in § 568-7H.
(5) 
When the operations will result in the loss of any utility service to private properties, the private properties shall be notified in writing or by personal contact at least 12 hours prior to the loss of service, unless the operations are part of an emergency excavation as defined in § 568-7H.
(6) 
Trenches adjacent to the roadway left open during nonworking hours shall be protected with snow fence along the entire trench edge and shall be marked with flashing barricades at each end.
(7) 
No equipment or construction materials may be stored during nonworking hours within Village roadway right-of-way.

(10) 
Construction materials spilled or tracked on pavement shall be immediately swept off by power broom equipment.
(11) 
No excavated materials may be stored temporarily or permanently within Village roadway right-of-way.
(12) 
The Village may elect to have the Village or an outside contractor make the pavement repair for any street or sidewalk opening, in which case the cost of making such repair and of maintaining it for one year shall be charged to the person making the street opening.
C. 
Pavement removal.
(1) 
Removal of existing pavement shall be to neat, straight lines. The permittee shall make a final saw cut in the existing pavement after backfilling. Excavations shall be kept to the minimum possible and acceptable for the convenience and safe performance of his/her work and in accordance with all applicable codes and regulations.
(2) 
Precautions shall be taken to prevent damage to road pavements. Sheathing and bracing or the use of a portable trench box should be used to prevent undermining of material below the existing pavement. If damage is done to the pavement, it shall be restored.
(3) 
If the pavement is damaged during excavation beyond the original saw cut lines, it shall be saw cut again along neat, straight lines. The finished saw cut shall leave a regular rectangular section for pavement replacement. Should the street opening occur within adjacent or close to an existing patch or require more than one opening within a short distance, the permittee shall identify and locate the existing patches or additional openings on the permit application form. The Director of Public Works shall, on the basis of an on-site inspection, approximate the boundaries of the pavement replacement area.
(4) 
Pavement replacement areas with the long dimension in the direction of travel shall have the long dimension parallel with the curbline or the direction of travel. Pavement replacement areas in concrete pavements shall be parallel with or at right angles to the direction of travel.
(5) 
The Director of Public Works may order the permittee to remove and replace up to one-full-lane width of pavement along the patched or excavated area. Special care shall be taken with concrete pavement to produce a vertical face on the existing concrete at the point of the saw cut to ensure a full depth of concrete at the joint.
D. 
Excavation.
(1) 
All excavated material shall be piled in a manner such that pedestrian and motor traffic is not unnecessarily disrupted. Gutters shall be kept clear or other satisfactory provisions made for street drainage, and natural watercourses shall not be obstructed.
(2) 
Excavated material to be used for backfilling of the trench must be so handled and placed as to be of as little inconvenience as practical to public travel and adjoining tenants.
E. 
Backfilling.
(1) 
All backfill material shall be free from cinders, ashes, refuse, vegetable or organic matter, boulders, rocks or stones greater than eight inches in their greatest dimension, frozen lumps or other material which, in the opinion of the Director of Public Works, is unsuitable.
(2) 
In refilling the excavation, if there is not sufficient material excavated suitable for refilling, the deficiency shall be made up with material, approved prior to use by the Director of Public Works, hauled in.
(3) 
Wherever an excavation crosses an existing utility, pipe or other structure, backfill shall be carefully compacted in stages from the bottom of the excavation. Any sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water, telephone, natural gas or other service shall not be interrupted by the permittee. It shall be the permittee's responsibility to have the various utilities locate and mark their facilities prior to excavation.
(4) 
Slurry backfill shall first be placed as noted above, then 12 inches (after compaction) of crushed aggregate of gradation No. 3 shall be placed, and then five inches of bituminous concrete pavement (hot mix, surface course) shall be laid in two compacted lifts.
(5) 
When allowed by the Village, mechanical compaction may be used on all materials used for trench backfill. Each layer (twelve-inch maximum) shall be uniformly compacted to a dry density of at least 95% of the maximum dry density as determined by the Modified Proctor Test (ASTM-1557).
(6) 
All excavations shall be subject to testing by the Village. Backfilled material not achieving the above compaction requirements shall be removed and recompacted by the permittee. The cost of any retesting shall be paid by the permittee.
(7) 
When the sides of the trench will not stand perpendicular, sheathing and braces shall be used to prevent caving. No timber, bracing, lagging, sheathing or other lumber shall be left in any trench. At no time shall any street pavements be permitted to overhang the excavation.
F.

F. 
Removal by Village.
