Sidewalks with more than 1/2 deflection to be cited
Does everybody understand that city code doesn't allow for more than 1/2" deflection?? This means that anywhere thare is a crack or lip of more than 1/2" it can be reported to the public works Dept and they will survey and mail a notice to property owner. Owners will have 90 days to correct problem or city will do it at owners expense. I encorage everybody to walk their neighborhoods, make a list and get it to public works dept. I personally did 4 blocks in east Lawrence neighborhoods and reported hundreds of violations to code. I suggest we do as much as possible before city commisioners take over the sidewalk repair program themselves and raise taxes on everbody for the work.
