A. When a permittee, or any person acting on its behalf, does any work in or affecting any public rights-of-way, other rights-of-way or city property, it shall, at its own expense, promptly remove any obstructions and restore such ways or property to as near the original condition as reasonably possible, unless otherwise directed by the City.

B. If weather or other conditions do not permit the complete restoration required by this section, the permittee shall temporarily restore the affected rights-of-way or property if directed to do so by the City engineer. Such temporary restoration shall be at the permittee’s sole expense and the permittee shall promptly undertake and complete the required permanent restoration when the weather or other conditions no longer prevent such permanent restoration. For the purpose of this subsection, temporary restoration means restoring the property to a safe condition permitting such use of the property as was made prior to the work being undertaken. Temporary restoration does not require paving, landscaping or surfacing of a permanent nature.

C. If the permittee fails to restore rights-of-way or property to as near the original condition as reasonably possible, the City shall give the permittee written notice and provide the permittee a reasonable period of time, not exceeding 30 days, to restore the rights-of-way or property. If, after such notice, the permittee fails to restore the rights-of-way or property to as near the original condition as reasonably possible, the City shall cause such restoration to be made at the expense of the permittee.

D. A permittee or other person acting in its behalf shall use suitable barricades, flags, flagmen, lights, flares and other measures as required for the safety of all members of the general public and to prevent injury or damage to any person, vehicle or property by reason of such work in or affecting such rights-of-way or property. (Ord. 2850 § 20, amended, 10/19/1999)
