About the Program
In 2010 the city reinstated the Sidewalk Inspection Program. This program will reduce the tripping hazards and other problems pedestrians encounter when using the sidewalks. The program looks at:
- Excessive Cracking
- Excessive Slope
- Joint Offsets
Once a sidewalk is inspected and found to be deficient, the property owner is notified of the need to repair. If the owner is not able to repair the sidewalk, the City will assess the property owner for any repairs required. The inspection program splits the city into four quarters with one quarter being inspected each year.
