Section 32-31 Permit Required

No person shall make any excavation or opening or dig any ditch, trench, tunnel or hole in, along, across or under any street, sidewalk or other public place for the purpose of laying or placing therein any pipes, wires or poles or for any other purposes unless a written permit therefor has been issued by some officer of the town vested with proper authority; provided, that a permit shall not be required where the work is performed under a contract with the town, but if the work requires a sidewalk or street to be wholly or partially obstructed, the party performing the work shall notify the town at least two hours before obstructing the sidewalk or street, unless prevented by sudden emergency.
