Permit to Occupy ROW

Permits to Occupy the ROW are necessary for dumpsters, storage containers or other items placed in the sidewalk/street area.  If these items are placed on private property (private driveways, lawns, etc.) no permit is required.

Applicants may complete this permit and bring it into our office for approval along with the $35 fee (accepted in the form of cash, credit card, or check made payable to "City of Watertown"). 

The permit is also available online through this link.  Payment can also be made online, if you wish.  Please see online payment information by clicking HERE.

Permits are good for two (2) weeks from the date of approval.  They are renewable for an additional $35 fee/time upon review of the City Engineer/Street Superintendent. 

For any obstruction in the ROW of main roads/thoroughfares, we request you call (920) 262-4060 for pre-approval.
