Utility Permit Agreement

All utilities located within the public right-of-way of the unincorporated limits of the county require a Utility Permit Agreement to be on file with the County Engineer. This agreement allows for the installation, operation, maintenance, location or removal of a licensee’s facilities. The agreement, once completed, should be submitted to Julie Williams, 1144 S. Seneca, Wichita, KS 67213

Highway Permit Agreement

Use of public right of ways within the unincorporated limits of the county, such as culvert installations and curb cuts for commercial driveways, require a highway permit agreement. This agreement allows for the installation, operation, maintenance, location or removal of a licensee’s facilities. The agreement, once completed, should be submitted to Julie Williams, 1144 S. Seneca, Wichita, KS 67213.

Culvert Permits

Entrance culverts for residential or agricultural use that are to be installed within the public right of way of the unincorporated limits of the county require prior approval from Public Works. Permit applications are filed through the MABCD, which accepts applications in person during their normal Monday – Friday business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 660-1840 to obtain a culvert permit.

Public Works will size and install a culvert along county maintained highways, but it is the responsibility of the property owner to purchase the culvert and make arrangements for delivery to the installation site. Please note that culverts that are to be installed along township maintained roads fall within the jurisdiction of the appropriate township. The applicant should contact the township to arrange for the purchase and installation of the culvert once an application has been approved by Public Works.

Questions regarding the culvert permit process should be directed to the MABCD located at 271 W. 3rd or by calling (316) 660-1840.
