What should I do if I have a dog fence, sump pump connection or irrigation system in my front parkway?

Private utilities may include, but are not limited to: lawn sprinkler systems, electric dog fence wires, sump pump discharges, underground wiring for decorative lighting, etc. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to have private utilities marked appropriately within the public right-of-way, which begins at the edge of your private property, and is generally the region between the sidewalk and the street. The Village and the Contractor are not responsible to pay for, or make repairs, to any private utility that is damaged within the right-of-way during construction, whether or not it is marked by the homeowner. Similarly, the Village and the Contractor are not responsible for any private landscaping located within the right-of-way that is damaged during construction. If there are excavations within the parkway area, the Contractor’s restoration will be limited to the installation of topsoil and sod.
