Hubby and I got back from our trip to the lake this weekend to find that the local utility locating service had come out and spray painted up my front yard like they're going to come and dig in it (they mark off the sewer lines, gas lines, etc.). I haven't gotten notification of any pending work by the utilities or from the city that they're doing work. We had our road ripped up and re-done but that has been wrapped up for a while.
I called the city this a.m. because I was about to spend money on landscaping supplies that would be ripped up if they dig again (my yard has been trenched open twice in the last year due to this road and utility work and I'm trying to put my yard back together again) but they have no active projects at my house. I called the locating company to see who filed the request for my property and they have nothing on file. Basically it is a big giant mystery who is going to be coming out to my house and what they're going to be doing.
If you were me - would you proceed with your landscaping because nobody seems to have plans at your house and perhaps it was a mistake that they even did the locating? Or would you wait to see what happens?
