Sureties and Bonds
A permit surety may be required of the permit holder or applicant. A surety is a monetary sum (an amount set by the Board of Managers, District staff and/or the District engineer after review of the project application or approved permit) provided by the applicant/permittee to the District to ensure the project is completed as designed and in compliance with District Rules. The District returns the money to the applicant/permittee after all permit conditions are met and the project is complete. If the District requires a surety, the applicant/permittee must provide the District the surety amount in the form of a check made out to the Pelican River Watershed District, or a Performance Bond, or Letter of Credit. Form templates can downloaded from below links.
