City offers cost-sharing program to repair sidewalks, curbs


Follow The Republic:


The city will work with Columbus homeowners to share the cost of replacing crumbling sidewalks and for the first time, will also include curb repairs.

Reimbursements of $4 per square foot for sidewalk replacement is available — double the rate previously available in the Shared Cost Sidewalk and Curb Program.

The city is also offering $25 per linear foot for approved curb projects.

While the city is responsible for repairing city streets, alleys and curb ramps, property owners are responsible for maintaining and repairing sidewalks and curbs, according to city ordinance.

Anyone who has paid for new sidewalks or curbs in 2014 or is planning to have the work done is eligible to apply for reimbursement.
