The Town Highway Superintendent shall establish regulations governing the issuance of highway work permits, including the fees to be charged therefor, a system of deposits of money or bonds guaranteeing the performance of the work and requirements of insurance to protect the interest of the Town during performance of the work pursuant to a highway work permit.
With respect to driveway entrance permits, the regulations shall take into consideration the prospective character of the development, the traffic which will be generated by the facility within the reasonably foreseeable future, the design and frequency of access to the facility, the effect of the facility upon drainage as related to existing drainage systems, the extent to which such facility may impair the safety and traffic-carrying capacity of the existing Town road and any proposed improvement thereto within the reasonably foreseeable future, and any standards governing access, nonaccess or limited access which have been established by the Town Highway Superintendent.
Upon completion of the work within the Town road right-of-way authorized by the work permit, the person, firm or corporation, and his or its successors in interest, shall be responsible for the maintenance and repair of such work or portion of such work as set forth within the terms and conditions of the work permit.
Any person, firm or corporation violating this article shall be liable to a fine of not less than $25 nor more than $250 or imprisonment for a term not to exceed 15 days, or both, for each day of violation, to be recovered by the Town Highway Superintendent and paid to the Town, and such person, firm or corporation may also be removed therefrom as a trespasser by the Town Highway Superintendent upon petition to the County Court of the county or to the Supreme Court of the state.
