(A) Any person who desires to make any excavation or opening for any purpose whatever in any street, alley, sidewalk, or other public place, or underneath the surface of the street, alley, or public place in the city, shall make and file with the Clerk-Treasurer a written and sworn application for a permit on a form prescribed by the Town Council, setting out the location, purpose, length, and width of the proposed excavation, type of back fill, resurfacing and thickness of resurfacing material and base, and other relevant information. Such person shall fully comply with such proposed excavation and resurfacing described in the application, subject to changes or requirements set forth in the permit. Such application shall contain an agreement that the license holder is responsible for and shall pay for any damage to person or property, including utilities, caused by the work performed under the license, either by the license holder or any contractor or person furnishing labor or materials, and that the license holder shall perform all obligations for which a bond is to be given under § 99.23, including the maintenance of the surface for a two year period. The town may modify the permit after first issuing the permit. The permit shall not be deemed to authorize the permit holder to interfere with or alter any utility, wire or drain.
(B) The application shall be accompanied by a license fee to be fixed by the Town Council from time to time, which may be based upon the time involved of town personnel in reviewing the application and the work by the license holder and other factors.
