Street openings may be made without the necessity of a written application, as provided for in § 85-2 hereof, in emergencies such as broken or frozen water mains or other happenings which would endanger public life, health and safety, provided that notice thereof shall be immediately given verbally to the Police Department. Written application for a permit shall nevertheless be made to the Borough as soon as may be convenient but, in any such event, within 48 hours or the next business day, all in accordance with § 85-1 hereof.
A. 
In addition to the required application fees, the permittee may be required to establish one or more cash escrow accounts with the Borough to cover the reasonable costs of professional review, consultation and inspections.
(1)

Failure to do so shall be reason for revocation of the permit.

Under extraordinary conditions not covered by this section, the Borough Engineer shall receive a copy of the plan of the permittee and, after evaluation, set a fee commensurate with the circumstances in the exercise of his/her reasonable judgment.
(6) 
The Borough Engineer and any other professionals engaged shall submit vouchers for all necessary fees for examination and review, which fees shall be paid in an ordinary manner.

B. 
No person, firm or corporation shall be granted a permit to open any street until and unless there shall be deposited, as a guaranty of performance with the Construction Code Official, an amount sufficient to pay the expenses of repairing and replacing such public streets or other surfaces or appurtenances within the street opening and excavation area in accordance with the following provisions. A check shall be deposited, made payable to the Borough of Park Ridge, in a total amount equal to $50 per square yard of paved area opening, $5 per square yard for lawn area openings and $20 per lineal foot for curb replacement; provided, however, that the minimum deposit shall be $500. Where the deposit exceeds $1,000, a bond may be filed for the excess over $500, satisfactory to the Borough as to form, amount and surety, with the Borough Treasurer, which bond will be conditioned upon replacing such opening or openings in the manner required herein, and the work shall be performed and paid for by the person, firm or corporation obtaining the permit. The filing of such bond shall not relieve any person, firm or corporation of the necessity of securing a permit and complying with all of the terms and conditions of this chapter. Expenses, if any, incurred by the Borough for the maintenance and repair of the replacement shall be deducted from the deposit posted by the permittee. Subject to the terms and conditions of this chapter, the deposit and bond shall be returned to the permittee one year after the date of the issuance of the restoration inspection certificate as indicated in § 85-6.

D. 
The Construction Code Official, Superintendent of Public Works, or Borough Engineer shall have the right to secure the services necessary to perform borings in the pavement, cut cores in the pavement or to perform other investigations as deemed necessary to confirm that the provisions of the street opening permit have been satisfied.

Upon completion of the work involved in such street opening, a request for inspection shall be made to the Construction Code Official. The inspection shall be performed by the Construction Code Official, Superintendent of Public Works or the Borough Engineer. If the inspection discloses that the street has been properly restored, (s)he shall issue a certificate of proper restoration to the permittee.
The permittee shall be responsible for the proper maintenance of that portion of the street for which the permit has been issued, including continued backfilling to compensate for settlement, for a period of one year from the date of the certification of the proper restoration of the street by the Construction Code Official, and such person shall further assume all liability for damages resulting therefrom or in any way connected therewith. In the event of the failure to restore the street opening properly within the time set forth herein after the opening has been made or to maintain the restored street properly for a period of one year from the date of the aforesaid certificate of proper restoration, the Construction Code Official, Superintendent of Public Works or the Borough Engineer may, upon three days' notice to the person receiving the permit, undertake or authorize its agent to undertake the restoration or maintenance work.
