The City's ordinance places responsibility for curb, gutter and sidewalk maintenance on the adjoining property owner which requires the owner to replace or repair the concrete in accordance with the City's ordinance.
Through the 50/50 program the City will share the cost for curb,gutter and sidewalk replacement for property that qualifies. In order to qualify for the 50/50 program, an inspector will need to determine if the sidewalk, curb and gutter meets the criteria. If it qualifies, the work will be added to the database and to be completed in the following year by a contractor for the City.
The cost for replacement varies with the type of curb, gutter and sidewalk. A notice with the property owner's 50 percent share will be sent before April 15 of the year that the work is to be completed. The City has a no-interest installment payment plan to assist property owners with their share of the cost.
