The sidewalk maintenance program repairs sidewalks that have an offset of 1” or more and are determined to be City Responsibility. The City takes responsibility for sidewalk repair for damage associated with City owned utility failures or damage from street tree roots.  To determine City responsibility the Public Works Department performs both a visual inspection and a video/dye testing inspection of the sewers.   After the inspections, the location is determined to either be Home Owner or City Responsibility.

The work being performed in 2017 is for the locations determined to be City Responsibility from 2016 inspections. 

If you want to report a sidewalk concern to determine if it is City or Home Owner responsibility please contact the Service Department at (330) 963-6212.   An inspection will be performed and if determined to be City responsibility, it will be included in future year maintenance programs.
