Letter: Property owners paying for sidewalk damage would be a ‘bitter pill’

0

I was glad to read that our city attorney Aaron Holloman, whose duty is to safeguard the interests of the city, sided with the citizens regarding responsibility of maintaining sidewalks adjoined to their property. Mr Holloman stated (an) amended ordinance would give people the chance to appeal citations regarding damaged unsafe sidewalks.

After the imposition of fees at the Adult Center, having property owners pay for damages they probably did not cause is the proverbial bitter pill. Such citations should only be issued if it can be proven property owner caused said damage.
