Utility Easements and Land Use


Understand the various situations in which licenses, franchises, or easements should be used.

Utilities are faced with options and choices regarding the manner which they will deliver their product to their customers. They may use the public rights-of-way or may choose to use private easements to lay their lines. This topic helps the person in charge with making the land usage decisions, as well as the city official assisting that person. The topic will discuss the various manners for acquiring the right to lay lines, and the strengths and weaknesses of those manners, and some specific topics that apply to various purposes of land uses.
