Any property owner desiring to obtain a permit for a service driveway or driveways to serve his property shall file application therefor with the city street superintendent; said application shall be in writing and shall contain information showing the type of construction, the length of driveways desired, location of driveway, and any other information which may be required by the city street superintendent.

Such driveways shall be in accordance with the specifications furnished by the city street superintendent as to design and shall not exceed the following maximum lengths, and if the city street superintendent finds that such driveways will be a menace to the safety of the city, the city street superintendent shall issue a rejection of such permit. If, however, the driveways meet with all requirements, then the city street superintendent shall issue a permit for the construction thereof of such driveway. [Ord. 314 § 1, 1941]
