The Village is offereing the Shared Cost program again in 2014. The Shared Cost program has proven to be a successful partnership between the Village and the property owners. During March, April, and May applications will be accepted from property owners, including businesses, interested in replacing sections of public sidewalk adjacent to their property. The Village will select a contractor in May through a competitve bidding process and the sidewalk replacement work will be performed throughout the summer.
Funding for this program is limited. Applications will be accepted on a "first come, first serve" basis until funding is exhausted. The last day applications will be accepted is May 30, 2014. The Cost Share application can be downloaded below or an application can be picked up at the Public Works Facility loacted at 1700 W Central Rd (intersection of Central and Busse Rd).
In 2014 the resident's share of the cost is $62.50 for a typical sidewalk square. This represents half of the anticipated bid cost of a sidewalk square. The Village pays the remaining amount. The contractor's work includes removing the existing square, replacing the square with new concrete and backfilling along the edges with topsoil.
