The City of Ithaca has adopted a new policy on sidewalks. The city has created 5 sidewalk districts throughout the city, and property owners will pay a fee based on the level of foot traffic within that district. The money will go towards repairing the sidewalks within each district.
The old system where a property owner paid the full cost of the sidewalk abutting his property didn’t work well and very few sidewalks were being repaired. This new policy hopefully will change all that.
Cortland – something to think about?
