Can the cost of the sidewalk replacement be added to the property taxes?
If the city completes the sidewalk replacement, the property owner will receive an invoice for the sidewalk replacement upon completion of the work. If the invoice is not paid within 30-days, a service charge is added to the invoice each month. Once a year, normally in October or November, all unpaid invoices are referred to the City Council for collection though property tax assessment. For sidewalk replacement, the period of time that this assessment will run on the property taxes is 5 years.
