A common misconception is that a street excavation permit is only needed when work is proposed within a Village roadway. In fact, a street excavation permit is needed any time work is proposed within Village rights of way, generally described as the area from 1 foot behind the sidewalks in urban areas and approximately 33 feet from the centerline in rural areas. The actual right of ways widths vary on a road by road basis. They should be verified with the Village Engineer prior to starting any digging in these areas.
A street excavation permit can be obtained at the Village Hall for $75.00.
For all requirements related to erosion control and stormwater management for construction sites, please see Chapter 526 Village of Slinger Municipal Code.
