When will my sidewalks be inspected?

The city has been divided into 3 geographical areas. In fall of 2014, the South East area was inspected. The South West area was inspected in fall of 2015, and the north area in fall of 2016. All three areas were inspected the first three years to get needed sidewalk repairs up to date throughout the city. One area will be inspected every two years, putting the city on a schedule to have each area inspected every 6 years. If a complaint is received on the condition of a sidewalk, an inspection will be made.
