Sidewalk Maintenance and Repair
Property owners or occupants are responsible for maintaining and repairing sidewalks that are next to their property, per City Charter Ordinance No. 88. This includes clearing debris like sand, gravel or leaves. It also includes the repair of trip hazards, broken or uneven sidewalks, or sidewalks being pushed up by tree roots. This ordinance is supported by state law to address the repair of sidewalks identified as a danger or hazard to the public.
Sidewalks in poor condition may be reported to the Right-of-Way Administrator at (316) 268-4418 or (316) 268-4501.
