Submit the Sidewalk Repair Form to let us know of your concern or call Engineering at 715-839-4934. Sidewalk concerns received by December 31st are added to the list of potential repairs for the following year.
Upon receipt the City conducts an inspection of the sidewalk where the extent of repairs and charge to the property owner are determined.
A preliminary resolution is prepared and presented to the City Council with the next year's proposed sidewalk repairs. Upon approval of the preliminary resolution, a public hearing is then scheduled and publicly noticed. All property owners affected by the potential sidewalk repairs are notified of and invited to attend the public hearing.
Following the public hearing, a final resolution for proposed sidewalk repairs is presented. The approved final resolution is publicly noticed and all affected property owners are notified via postal mail of the required repairs.
The City contracts out the sidewalk repair work to a quality contractor, and the work completed by the contractor is then assessed to the property owner.
Can I fix the sidewalk?
Yes. Property owners have 20 days to decide once receiving the final resolution indicating the required repairs if they'd prefer that the City complete the repairs or if they'd like to complete the repairs or work with a contractor on their own.
The work is completed by the City contractor unless special arrangements have been made with the Engineering Department.
Property owners choosing to complete the sidewalk repairs or work with a contractor on their own should:
Notify Engineering at 715-839-4934.
Contact the Survey Team in Engineering at 715-839-4934 for grade stakes if the repair is greater than 30 feet in length.
