Can I hire a contractor or do the work myself?

The property owner may elect to replace the problem public sidewalk by hiring a contractor to perform the work. That contractor must obtain a Right-of-Way Permit through the city engineering division prior to beginning work. The work must be completed BEFORE the city’s contractor arrives on that street.
