From the Roads & Bridges Committee


      Please be advised that the Charlotte County Public Works Department is authorizing a contractor to grade and place sand and shell material on our unpaved island roads, creating  an 18’ designated travel way. This project is being funded by our Don Pedro/Knight Islands Street and Drainage Municipal Services Taxing Unit. When this work is completed, the appropriate Charlotte County Departments will work to enforce the requirements that state all parties, including contractors and residents, will be responsible to repair any damage that they have caused to the roads and right-of-ways under OR 85-43 and Muni Code(s) 3-6-21. This will be done in order to protect our substantial monetary investment in this project and prolong its useful life expectancy.

     OR 85-43 and Muni Code(s) 3-6-21 require that all work done in the County rights-of-way require a permit from the Charlotte County Engineering, Building and/or Zoning Departments. This work includes, but is not limited to, planting of trees and shrubs, change in ground elevation and installation of signs or any structure or topographic feature.
