Permits and Contractor Forms The Engineering Division is responsible for receiving, processing, and issuing a permit for any excavation, trenching and utility installation. In addition, pre-qualification requirements and forms must be submitted, verified, and on file with the Engineering Division before an excavation permit will be issued. All work must be in compliance with Provo City Standards and Specifications. If you have questions or if you need more information regarding permits and pre-qualification requirements, please contact the Engineering Division Main Office.
