Under this Cost-Share Program, property owners may request that the sidewalk, curb, and/or driveway culvert be repaired or replaced under a cost-share agreement between the property owner and the City. Under the Cost-Share Program, the property owner agrees to pay for all the materials associated and related to the project (concrete, culvert, gravel) with the City providing the labor and equipment. Additionally, under the Cost-Share Program, the City’s required right-of-way (ROW) permit is waived. Again, the program is believed to be a cost-effective solution for all involved.
Driveway culverts are typically driven by owner concerns and requests, but the City codes can be utilized to require replacement in some cases where the culvert is not functioning properly and poses a public hazard.
Replacement of curb is strictly a voluntary program that gives the public the option to replace curb segments in front of their property sooner than the City might otherwise. Sidewalk replacement can be voluntary in some cases but will primarily be driven by code enforcement.
