The permit shall be issued only if the Fire Division Prevention Bureau is advised by the chief of police or his or her designee that the requested location does not create a safety hazard.  The terms of the permit will require a minimum of two (2) Type III barricades meeting the requirements of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices with one barricade being erected on each end of the roll off refuse box.  The City may require additional warning devices.  In no event shall the roll off refuse box be placed closer than forty (40) feet to any street intersection.  Placement of a roll off refuse box on the street right of way shall be permitted only where parking is allowed.  The permit is valid for ten (10) days only.  One five (5) day extension may be granted upon request.  Additional five (5) day extensions may be granted for placement of roll off refuse boxes in areas located in a C-2 zoning district.
