Public Works Permits

Getting Started

The Logan City Public Works Department manages the public right-of-ways and ensures the safety of those using the public right-of-ways. In addition, Public Works manages the State General Storm Water Permit within the City to ensure the protection of the waters of the State of Utah. Thousands of inspections occur each year by inspectors and engineers who implement the standards established by the American Public Works Association. Any work within the public right-of-way and any land disturbing activities within Logan City Limits requires a permit. This allows the City to protect utilities and allow improvements while protecting the safety of citizens and waters of the State.
