The following words and phrases when used in this ordinance shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section:

City Utility Easements. All private areas specified on appropriate documents, whether of record or not, as being reserved for installation of City utilities, including sewer, storm, and water facilities.

Minor Repair or Construction. Any activity which, in the discretion of the City Engineer, includes a short-term temporary use of the right-of-way and where pavement or sidewalk is not to be disturbed or broken and mechanical equipment other than ordinary domestic tools are not required. Examples of such activities include, but are not limited to, the sweeping and/or cleaning of debris from the right-of-way, and trimming, cutting, or pruning vegetation within the right-of-way.

Multiple Use Permit. A permit issued to a public utility or other entity by the City authorizing repetitive activities within City rights-of-way. Such permit will be issued in lieu of separate permits for each activity, where in the City Engineer's discretion a separate permit for each activity would be unduly burdensome.

Rights-of-Way. All public streets and property granted or reserved for, or dedicated to, public use for streets and all public utilities therein, including easements in favor of the City, together with public property granted or reserved for, or dedicated to, public use for curbs, gutters, and walkways or sidewalks, whether improved or unimproved, including the air rights, subsurface rights, and all easements in favor of the City related thereto.

Unsafe Condition. Any condition which the City Engineer determines poses a hazard to the health, safety, or welfare of the public or endangers the safe use of the rights-of-way by the public, or does or may impair or impede the operation or functioning of any portion of the rights-of-way, or which may cause damage to the right-of-way.
