I have crews from a cable company digging in my front yard, are they allowed
to do this?
YES. The licensed cable operator in Mesa has a license agreement allowing the use of Public Utility Easements and Public Right of Ways
that adjoin your property, in a similar manner as other utility companies
that operate in the city. In all cases, the cable provider should have a
permit authorized by the City of Mesa, allowing them to conduct the work
they plan to perform.
Is the cable provider required to notify me of construction work they plan to
do at or around my home? YES, a door hanger should be placed on your door several days before any
planned construction occurs. The door hanger should provide a phone
number and identification of the cable operator working in your area.
Should personnel from the cable operator or their subcontractor need to
access a rear easement and nobody is home, then a door tag should be placed
on the door alerting someone coming home that activity is occurring or has
occurred on the property.
Subcontractors working for the cable operators have the same requirement to
notify you of any activity that may affect your residence
