Apply for a utility permit

If you are a utility company (for example, Xcel Energy, CenturyLink, HBC, Charter Communications, or another utility) wishing to do work within the city right of way, you will need to fill out a Utility Permit. This permit can be found at the Permits and Licensing page. The fee for a utility permit is $100 for mainline work or $0 for service work from the main lines to a house, business, or other building. Utility permits are required for work on service work within city right of way even though the permit fee is free.


If you are a property owner, business owner, or resident wishing to do work in city right of way, you do not need to submit a Utility Permit. Instead, you need to fill out an Application for Work in City Right of Way, which can be found on the Permits & Licensing page.
