No opening in any street, road or pavements of the Village of Shoreham shall be made except by permission of the Mayor or the Board of Trustees and in accordance with the terms of the permit.
Application for such permission may be made to the Mayor or the Board of Trustees, and shall be accompanied by a plan showing the location and character of the proposed work and by a certified check for $50.00 drawn to the order of the Village Treasurer, such check to be retained as a guarantee that the street and pavement shall be restored to its original condition. Furthermore, the Mayor and/or Board of Trustees shall have the power to employ an inspector who shall be present on the proposed work from its inception until its completion, whose duty it shall be to see that the work is carried on with the least possible damage to the street and pavement and the least possible inconvenience to the abutting property owners and the public, and that trenches and tunnels are properly back-filled and tamped and that drain pipes and pavements and other fixtures are fully restored. Such inspection shall be paid for out of the moneys deposited with the Treasurer by the party making application for street opening permit, and the balance remaining, after deducting any expenses and damages lawfully retained, shall be repaid to the applicant upon the inspector's certification to the Mayor or Board of Trustees, or it shall appear to the Board of Trustees that all the work has been completed as herein provided.
Before issuing any such permit the Mayor or Board of Trustees, if the said sum of $50.00 is not deemed sufficient, may require a sufficient deposit or guarantee to insure the proper relaying of such street or pavement, and other work incidental thereto, and the payment of all expenses and charges in connection therewith.
Any violation hereof shall render the offender liable to a penalty of not less than twenty-five dollars nor more than two hundred fifty dollars for each and every offence.
