The Wyandot County Engineer's Office requires permits for all work performed within a road's public right-of-way in order to maintain the integrity of the roadway system. Special Hauling Permits are also required for overweight vehicles.
Permits are issued by the WCEO for the County road network and all 13 townships, since the County Engineer functions as the engineer for the townships. There is no charge to obtain a permit.
All applications are reviewed and permits are issued provided the proposed work meets all County standards.
The authority to regulate work that obstructs or interferes with the safety or usage of any portion of the county right-of-way is provided in Chapter 5547 of the Ohio Revised Code and includes all objects in the right-of-way that are owned by utilities or adjacent property owners. The authority to regulate the installation of driveway culverts, other excavation or construction/reconstruction of utility poles on township roads is provided in Section 5571.16 of the Ohio Revised Code.
