Where there exists curb and gutter in any street and the owner of property fronting the street desires to develop the lot or to add a driveway to a lot, then the owner shall make application to the City Manager for such a driveway, stating the requested size. Upon the approval of the City Manager, based on this chapter, the applicant shall be permitted to remove the existing curb and gutter and to install a driveway by the then existing standard plans of the city. If Public Works Department labor and supervision are available, then the property owner may contract with the city to cut and remove the curb for a cost equal to materials, labor and supervision.
