(A) Authority Granted; No Property Right Or Other Interest Created: A permit from the Village authorizes a permittee to undertake only certain activities in accordance with this chapter on Village rights-of-way, and does not create a property right or grant authority to the permittee to impinge upon the rights of others who may have an interest in the rights-of-way.
(B) Duration: No permit issued to a utility shall be valid for a period longer than one hundred twenty (120) days, and may be extended upon the payment of the appropriate fee as established in Title 1, Chapter 20, “Fees, Fines, Insurance, Guarantees, and Regulatory Measures”. Collocation of small wireless facilities must be completed within one hundred eighty (180) days after the issuance of the permit. If collocation is not complete, the permit will be void. Permits for small wireless facilities are valid for five (5) years from the time of issuance.
(C) Preconstruction Meeting Required: No construction shall begin pursuant to a permit issued under this chapter prior to attendance by the permittee and all major contractors and subcontractors who will perform any work under the permit at a preconstruction meeting. The Director of Public Works may waive the requirement for a preconstruction meeting for work which is substantially similar to that for which a meeting has been previously held. The preconstruction meeting, if any, shall be held at a date, time and place designated by the Village with such Village representatives in attendance as the Village deems necessary. The meeting shall be for the purpose of reviewing the work under the permit, and reviewing special considerations necessary in the areas where work will occur, including, without limitation, presence or absence of other facilities in the area and their locations, procedures to avoid disruption of other facilities, use of rights- of-way by the public during construction, and access and egress by adjacent property owners.
(D) Compliance With All Laws Required: The issuance of a permit by the Village does not excuse the permittee from complying with other requirements of the Village and applicable statutes, laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations.
(E) Display Of Permit: The permittee shall maintain a copy of the permit and approved plans at the construction site, which shall be displayed and made available for inspection by the Director of Public Works or his assignee at all times when construction work is occurring.
