Sidewalk Assessment Notices

Two legal notices about sidewalk assessments were printed in the May 15 edition of the Oakwood Register and have caused some confusion. These were routine notices related to the city’s annual Sidewalk, Curb, and Driveway Apron Repair Program.  The notices list all streets that are within the geographic limits of the 2022 and 2023 project areas, including streets that may not have sidewalks.  Residents should note that this does not mean new sidewalks are, or were, to be constructed.  These notices pertain to repairs only, and to work that was done in 2022 and 2023.  The only costs being assessed are costs that remain unpaid after the affected property owners were invoiced.
