Nye County Public Works will be hosting a series of Encroachment Permit Workshops in the towns throughout the county in the coming weeks.
Contractors and the public are invited to the informative meetings as an opportunity for Public Works representatives to help "all the communities to understand the encroachment permit review and approval process," said Tim Dahl, Public Works Director.

Issues to be covered in the workshop will include:
How to complete an encroachment permit and traffic plan
Where to find encroachment permit documents
Where to submit an encroachment permit
What can be installed in the right-of-way
Encroachment permit fee schedule
Description of an obstruction
When to expect a response
