Sidewalk & Street Questions
Q.
How do you select which City streets will be paved each year?
A.  The Engineering Staff drives and assesses each street annually.  Streets are chosen based on use, condition, and roughness. Ulltimately the determination is made by the Superintendent of Engineering Services.

Q.
Why does it take so long to pave a street after it has been milled?
A.  After milling, a street requires patching, manhole and catch basin adjustment to grade, and installation of curbing or handicap ramps.  Final cleaning is then performed before the street can be paved.  Depending on the size of the street and contractor schedule this can take up to three weeks before paving.

Q.
When is the City going to replace my curbs and sidewalks?
A.  It is the responsibility of each individual homeowner to maintain and replace curbing and sidewalk it front of their own home per the City Code.

Q.
When a street is paved, why doesn’t the City install curbing?
A.  Currently, the City Code states that the Homeowner is responsible for curbing along their property frontage.

Q.
Why doesn’t the City repair North Street?
A.  The New York State Department of Transportation is currently redesigning North Street for reconstruction in 2016.  However, the NYSDOT has given notice that they will be milling and overlaying the street in the next two years.
