Ithaca lays out new sidewalk policy

The City of Ithaca is putting together a work schedule for its new sidewalk policy which has all residents paying into repairs.

The new policy will have one-family homes paying an annual assessment fee of $70 to go towards a sidewalk repair fund.

The city held a public meeting Monday to gauge interest from the public as to which repair projects they’d like to see go forward.

City Engineer Tim Logue says the city is in the process of hiring a sidewalk manager, while calling on residents to submit projects for the work schedule over the next couple of years.
