Members of the Nassau County Legislative Majority are planning to unveil a bill that will require utilities and other entities who dig up county roads to install gas, electric, and other lines, to fully restore the road upon completion of the project.
 
Across the County, legislators have seen sub-par road work done by utilities following work that necessitated digging up existing paved roads.
 
This bill will allow the county to Bill the utility for the cost to fix the road, should the repairs not be satisfactory to the commissioner  of Public Works. 
 
The Bill is set to come before the full legislature on 5/24 at 1 pm.
