MATC, Room D240AC

District 2 and District 6 are the two alder districts that are having sidewalks repaired/sections replaced this year.  This program is done throughout the city with specified areas being checked and sidewalks repaired every ten years.  District 2 was last reviewed with sidewalk having been repaired in 2006.  

All property owners where sidewalks have been marked for repair or replacement should have gotten notification with an estimated cost for the repairs/replacement.  That notification included information about this meeting where city staff will be available to answer questions. 

If you cannot make it to the meeting but have questions you can contact city inspection staff:  Bill Schlotthauer:  266-4088, Jason Ledden:  264-7340 or Bill McGlynn:  266-4537.

*Consent agenda--The consent agenda includes many agenda items that come to a vote without testimony or Council discussion.  Should anyone register and wish to speak, the item would be taken off the consent agenda.
