Should the city or property owner be responsible for repairing the sidewalk?
Asked at Asked on Massachusetts Street on January 20, 2006
“The city, because the sidewalk is a public place and a lot of other people use it besides the property owner.”
“I guess the city should, because most property owners don’t have the skill or means to fix their own sidewalk.”
““The property owner, because I think there are a lot more important things to spend our tax money on, like education.””
“It’s the city’s job to take care of public property, and I think that since the sidewalk is usually used as public property, they should be the ones to repair it.”
