Knox Mayor Accepting Applications for 50/50 Sidewalk Program

Does your sidewalk look like this?

If the sidewalk in front of your Knox residence or business needs repaired, you could have half of it paid for by the City of Knox.

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers is now taking applications for the 50/50 residential/business sidewalk replacement program. Your request will be evaluated by the Street Superintendent and he will approve or disapprove the application. A bid will be requested for the work to be done and after the bid is awarded, you will be notified of the cost and you must pay for your half of the cost before construction begins.

Upon the completion of the work, the Street Superintendent will make a final inspection and approve the payment to the contractor.

All requests will be assessed and awarded on a first come-first served basis and until available funds run out.

The Mayor will be taking sidewalk repair applications until Monday, April 23rd at 4:00 p.m.
