A Right-of-Way License is required to permanently place utilities and utility infrastructure within the County right(s)-of-way. A Right-of-Way License is also required if a facility owner is upgrading their utility that requires work to be completed within the County right(s)-of-way. Normal maintenance of a licensed utility will not require a new permit, however, the Public Works – Engineering Office shall be notified prior to all maintenance work commencing. If there is an existing non-licensed utility within the County right-of-way, a Right-of-Way License is required for record and the fee waived.
Right-of-Way Licensing with the County is a two-part process. A Master License Agreement is executed one-time by the owner of the facility to be licensed within the County right(s)-of-way. A Sheridan County License Agreement will be required for each utility crossing and/or utility encroachment under the executed Master License Agreement.
Both the Master License Agreement and the Sheridan County License Agreement require notarized signature from the owner of the facility.
All access connections to a County road require a Driveway Permit. A Driveway Permit must be submitted and approved before construction begins. If an existing driveway use changes a Driveway Permit must be submitted and approved prior to the use change and/or construction to change said use. Examples of access use change are a change from a field driveway to residential driveway and/or a field driveway/ residential driveway to a commercial driveway.
