The property owner is responsible for repair of damaged sidewalks. The city’s engineering department manages a 50/50 reimbursement program. The city will reimburse the property owner for 50% of the cost of replacing sidewalks, subject to available funding. Contact the Engineering Department at 846-0223 to request information on the 50/50 program. At the time of the repair, you can have roots pruned and/or install root barriers to minimize future damage. If the tree meets the requirements for tree removal, you may request to remove the tree and plant a new tree.
