Really? This is legal?


Shouldn’t the Department of Public Works identify and mark sidewalks that are not in good repair and notify the individual homeowner before repairing it at their expense? This just strikes me as the city giving itself a blank check to fix sidewalks at homeowners’ expense without warning.

What constitutes “good repair” for a sidewalk? My sidewalks look pretty good. Do tiny ant hills in the cracks count as not being in “good repair? Occasional weeds between the blocks? I think one square has a chip in it. Does the whole square need to be replaced?

I shouldn’t need my attorney and my building contractor to read my newspaper for me. How long has this scam been going on?

(Thanks George.)
