Curb Replacement Policy

Print

Policy.  Deteriorated curb and gutter sections along the public right-of-way due to improper driveway construction, freeze-thawing, or poor concrete quality shall be eligible for the curb replacement program. This program requires a 50 percent shared cost for the property owner through a special assessment, with the City paying the remaining 50 percent.

Procedure.  After initial contact is made with the Public Works Department, staff will visit the site and determine if the situation qualifies for the curb replacement program. Within two working days the general provision for the program will be discussed with the proper owner.
