ON YOUR PROPERTY:> All existing and new overhead utility lines on your property must be underground, unless the Public Works Director determines that this is infeasible. A complete application for Deferment of Utility Undergrounding must be submitted to the Public Works Department. After reviewing your deferment application, the Public Works Director also may require you to submit a statement from all utility companies with existing overhead lines indicating if undergrounding is feasible.> If the Public Works Director determines that undergrounding on a property is not feasible, the property owner must sign a concomitant agreement for future undergrounding. The concomitant agreement form is available at the Public Works Department and must be signed, notarized and returned to the Public Works Department with applicable recording fees. The City then will record the agreement.> The Public Works Director also may require immediate installation of underground conduit between your building and the right-of-way for future undergrounding of overhead lines.
