Sidewalks & Curbs

 

Current Borough Ordinance (#'s 39, 397 and 403) provides that all owners (or agent of owner), with property abutting or fronting upon any street, are required to keep the public walkway immediately abutting their property in good repair. The Borough will inspect and the property owner will be notified that repairs are necessary. If not done by the property owner, the Borough will contract to have the work done at the property owners expense. Notices are expected to be sent in Spring/Summer 2021 with repairs to be done by the end of 2021. 

Sidewalks shall be installed one foot from the front boundary line of the property. Sidewalks shall be five feet in width and shall be constructed only of four inch thick concrete or standard paving brick. Blacktop or other similar materials are not permitted for construction of sidewalks.
