[CC 1997 §6-11; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
At least twenty (20) days prior to the proposed use of any street by trucks, hauling or grading equipment or other construction vehicles, the contractor in charge of such work shall make a written report to the Street Commissioner detailing the number and description of such trucks, hauling or grading equipment or construction vehicles, the loaded and unloaded weight of such equipment and the length of time the contractor proposes the use of the streets by such vehicles or equipment. The contractor shall furnish the Street Commissioner with all other information required by him/her to estimate or determine the amount of wear and tear or damage, if any, that may be caused to the streets by such usage. The Street Commissioner may additionally require any contractor or subcontractor to post surety or insurance with the City to insure the City of full compensation for any damage to streets or public facilities in connection with any damage caused by any facet of construction work.
[CC 1997 §6-12; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
The Street Commissioner shall, at least five (5) days before the commencement of usage of any streets, notify the contractor of the routes assigned to such trucks and equipment and issue a permit therefor. The contractor, his/her agents, servants, employees and subcontractors shall use only the routes designated by the Street Commissioner. In the event of an emergency appearing to require a change in route, or if the Street Commissioner determines that any route so designated is not safe or that damage is being caused to any street, or if he/she finds the public welfare or safety so requires, the Street Commissioner may, upon three (3) days' notice, in writing, designate an alternative route and it shall thereupon be the duty of the contractor, his/her agents, servants, employees and subcontractors to use the alternate route designated by the Street Commissioner.
[CC 1997 §6-13; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
The Street Commissioner may, if he/she deems it necessary, immediately prior to designating the routes or alternate routes, determine the condition of the streets or roads to be used and cause the taking of photographs of such streets, showing the condition of the pavement, curbs and other physical features, which shall be dated and a memorandum made of the location shown by each photograph. Within five (5) days after the termination of the use of the streets as hereinabove provided, the Street Commissioner may, if he/she deems it necessary, make additional photographs with the proper descriptive matter.
[CC 1997 §6-14; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
In addition to before and after photographs, if deemed necessary, the Street Commissioner shall make a thorough inspection of the condition of the streets used by the contractors, their agents, servants, employees and subcontractors and make written reports including an estimate of the cost, if any, of restoring the street to its condition prior to use by construction vehicles
[CC 1997 §6-15; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
At the time the Street Commissioner designates the routes, he/she shall inform, in writing, the contractor, its agents, servants, employees and subcontractors that the City will hold them liable for damage to the streets resulting from such usage and that acceptance of the route shall constitute an agreement by the contractors to pay to the City the reasonable cost of restoring the streets to their condition prior to use by the contractors. Within thirty (30) days after termination of the contractor's usage of the route, the contractor or his/her agents, servants, employees and subcontractors shall pay to the City an amount the City deems sufficient to restore the streets.
[CC 1997 §6-16; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
If, during the course of construction, the contractor deems it necessary, for the completion of the work or for the safety or protection of the public, to close any street, way, alley or public place, the contractor, his/her agents, servants, employees or subcontractors shall notify the Street Commissioner thereof and the Street Commissioner may issue a permit for such closing and may require the contractor to install barriers, warning notices and necessary traffic direction signs for the protection and convenience of the public
[CC 1997 §6-17; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
Where construction is adjacent to any public street which has not been closed to traffic, the contractor shall provide ample lighting and sufficient barriers and caution signs to warn the public using the unclosed street to protect the public from injury to person or damage to property.
[CC 1997 §6-18; Ord. No. 258 §11, 12-11-1967]
The routes designated by the Street Commissioner for use by trucks and equipment may be used by the contractor, his/her agents, servants, employees or subcontractors on weekdays and Saturdays between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 10:00 P.M. and at no other time; provided, that in case of emergency or in the interest of the general safety and welfare of the City and its inhabitants, the Street Commissioner may grant a permit for the use of the streets at times other than as herein set out.
