Who’s responsible for maintaining sidewalks and curbs in residential neighborhood areas?
According to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, sidewalk repair is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. The city’s street maintenance program addresses a small portion of the city’s curbs each year, as well as other maintenance programs such as crack/sealing, microsurfacing, mill/overlay, and concrete patching. Curbs are fixed as they are scheduled in the street maintenance program on a priority basis and in correlation with the city’s pavement condition index. Residents should call the Public Works Department to report curb problems, 832-3023.
