Sidewalk Project

Hazardous Sidewalk Paint Web

The City of Morris is putting together a program for next year to replace sidewalks.  Property owners are responsible for their sidewalks, unless there is an issue with a boulevard tree.  Then the City will be responsible.  You may notice pink paint marks on various sidewalks around the city.  A survey was done and the most hazardous spots were marked.  Owners of the property will be notified about the next steps.  In some cases, you may want to do additional work.  In other cases, you won’t need to do anything.  The City is putting together funding for the project to include providing financing to property owners.  This is done through a special assessment process.  Usually the time period of financing is 5 years and the interest rate depends on city investments.  A letter will go out sometime in January.
