This bill provides that a public utility is to provide to a county or municipality notice in writing at least one calendar year prior to initiating work on a public utility infrastructure project in that county or municipality which requires the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities's (board) approval, except in an emergency. The notice is to include a summary of the purpose and scope of the public utility infrastructure project, a timeline and map of the public utility infrastructure project, and any other information deemed necessary by the board. The bill requires a county or municipality to annually inform a public utility of planned infrastructure projects that will be undertaken by the municipality or county. Finally, the bill requires a public utility, upon completing a project that requires road excavation work in a county or municipality, to restore the road to the condition that is required pursuant to ordinances in that county or municipality.
