[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of Waterloo 10-19-1987 by Ord. No. 87-6 as §§ 8.12 and 8.20 of the 1987 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Building construction — See Ch. 140.
No person shall move any building into or within the City without a permit from the Building Inspector upon 30 days' notice.
Application for a permit shall be made on a form provided by the Clerk-Treasurer.
The permit fee shall be as stated in the City of Waterloo Fee Schedule.
Editor's Note: The Fee Schedule is on file at the office of the City Clerk-Treasurer.
Before a permit is issued, the mover must deposit with the Clerk-Treasurer a corporate surety bond, approved by the City Attorney, in the amount of $10,000, conditioned that the mover shall save the City harmless from any liability arising out of the move and shall restore any street damaged by the move. This provision may be waived by the Building Inspector for small buildings.
Before a moving permit shall be issued, the applicant shall submit to the Clerk-Treasurer or the Director of Public Works a certificate of insurance evidencing that the applicant has in force and will maintain during the term of the permit public liability insurance of not less than $500,000 for any one person, $1,000,000 for any one accident and $50,000 for property damage.
Prior to the issuance of said permit, the owner or mover shall certify that he has notified all public utilities whose lines or poles may be interfered with during the movement of the building. Such utilities shall take whatever steps are necessary to permit the building to be moved without damage to their lines and poles and may charge the permittee the cost thereof.
Once the move has commenced, the mover shall complete the move as soon as conveniently may be.
Every permittee shall, within one day after reaching his destination, report that fact to the Director of Public Works or the Clerk-Treasurer. The Director shall thereupon inspect the streets and highways over which said building has been moved and ascertain their condition. If the moving of said building has caused any damage to the streets or highways, the building mover shall forthwith place them in as good condition as they were before the permit was granted. Upon failure of the building mover to do so within 10 days thereafter to the satisfaction of the Director, the City shall repair the damage done to such streets and highways and hold the sureties of the bond given by the building mover responsible for the payment of the same.
