  9. "Local [governing body] GOVERNMENT" means a COUNTY, town [or], city

  d.  Provide  local  [governing  bodies] GOVERNMENTS with the telephone

and  excavators  of  the  system  and their responsibilities relating to
protection of underground facilities; cooperate  with  local  [governing
bodies]  GOVERNMENTS  to  encourage their participation in the system to
assure that when permits involving excavation and demolition are issued,
excavators and operators receive information about the system and  about
