The city of Knox is getting ready for the 50/50 sidewalk replacement program.
This is a chance for residents to repair sidewalks at half the cost. If you have a troublesome area that would benefit from this program, Mayor Rick Chambers is accepting requests now from homeowners and business owners. The application deadline is Monday, April 15.
When a request is received by the mayor, Street Superintendent Jeff Borg will inspect the area and approve or disapprove the order. A bid for the work will be awarded and then the property owner will be notified of the cost and must pay half of the cost to the city before construction will begin and must be made within 14 days of notification in order for the project to continue.
When the sidewalk work is complete, Borg will make one last inspection and approve payment to the contractor.
If you need more information, call the Mayor’s office at (574) 772-4553.
