If in the course of events the owner of a previously approved encroachment finds that emergency repairs are necessary to protect the facility, or to protect the investment of the owner and/or to provide continuing service to the public, and the owner of the facility finds that the city office that would issue the encroachment permit is not open, the owner may, after reporting to the police department the nature of any encroachment into the public roadway that may affect vehicle traffic or pedestrians, after notifying the Regional Notification Center (Underground Service Alert), conduct such work as is necessary to cause the needed repairs, provided that the owner of the facility requests a permit for the work conducted on the next day that the city office that issues encroachment permits is open. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this code, no emergency work may be done if the police department determines that the proposed work would represent an unreasonable threat to the public health, welfare or safety. (Ord. 1131 § 2 (part), 1989)
