Once they are notified that a hazard exists, property owners have 30 days to complete repairs either by doing the work themselves, hiring a contractor or asking the City to make repairs. A City permit is required for sidewalk repair within the City right-of-way. Fees or bonds are based on the linear footage of sidewalk being replaced. The City also provides property owners with an inspection to be sure that the repair is completed according to City code. Permits can be downloaded from the Engineering Department section on this website or obtained at the Engineering Services office located at 1300 White Street. Call 305-809-3965 for further information.
