Conyngham Borough Permit Bond

Bond Penalty: $1,000 for small excavation/street work, 110% of project value if >100 square feet

In August, 2017 the Conyngham Borough Council updated its policy on surety bonding of work that encroaches upon borough streets. The municipal ordnance states that, "Applicants for permits shall submit a bond in the amount of $1,000 for each permit for opening of a street of one hundred square feet or less. For openings in excess of one hundred square feet or borings, the amount must be equal to one hundred and ten percent of the cost of the completion of the work estimated as of ninety days following the schedule of completion. The estimate must be prepared by an engineer licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and certified in writing that the estimate is a fair and accurate representation of the project costs. "The ordnance also obligates the permit applicant to file a maintenance bond of $500 for one hundred square feet or less. For openings in excess of one hundred square feet or borings, the amount must be equal to fifteen percent of the cost of the work. The Conyngham Borough surety bond must be valid for claims for no less than twenty four months after completion."
