The Assistant City Manager for Public Works may require an additional surety bond or cash deposit at any time when, in his opinion, the amount of the bond or cash deposit previously made is insufficient.

Any bond or cash deposit required pursuant to this chapter shall be payable to the City of Berkeley. Upon satisfactory completion of all work authorized in the permit, and fulfillment of all conditions of the permit, the bond or cash deposit will be released. (Ord. 5514-NS § 1, 1983)

All work or use shall be planned and executed in a manner that will least interfere with the safe and convenient travel of the general public at the place where the work or use is authorized; and at no time shall a public street be closed, or the use or access thereof denied the general public, or to adjacent private property without the written permission of the Assistant City Manager for Public Works.
