If a City tree is causing the sidewalk to rise and or crack, the City will schedule the sidewalk for repairs. However, if the sidewalk is in an unsafe condition, for other than a City street tree related reason, it is the property owner’s responsibility to repair and maintain the sidewalk surrounding the property. Permits are required. Permits can be obtained at City Hall (65 Civic Avenue) at the Building/Planning/Engineering Counter located on the first floor. Please reference City ordinance, Chapter 12.26
, section 90-986, for additional information.
