The village board may adopt, from time to time, public works construction standards upon the recommendation of the village engineer and village manager. The public works construction standards shall contain construction regulations and standards, and engineering permit instructions and conditions. All work in public ways shall be designed and constructed substantially in compliance with the public works construction standards.
The village shall use sound engineering judgment when administering the public works construction standards and the village engineer may vary the public works construction standards upon the approval of the village manager in specific cases which are in harmony with the spirit of the standards and when deemed appropriate. Nothing herein shall be construed to limit the ability of the village to regulate its public ways for the protection of the public health, safety and welfare. (Ord. G-637, 7-13-1999; Ord.
