      One of the board moderators was hit with this ordinance to fix the city-owned sidewalk. I am not sure of the legality of this: if the city OWNS the sidewalk, THEY should be the ones paying for repairs. The residents pay enough in taxes. There is a difference between a privately-owned path and a publicly-owned driveway.

      Perhaps an audit of all city offices might be in order?

      Hawthorne is now planning to fix the sidewalks -
      after charging residents $$ to fix 'em themselves.

      This problem has been
      ongoing:

      - For the past
      several years, an ordinance has been in place that
      if a Hawthorne resident files a building permit
      to fix or renovate their home,
      - That
      individual resident has been hit with a HUGE bill to also
      fix the City-owned sidewalk in front of their home!

      Now, this week, our streets
      have placed "notice to repair sidewalk" orange
      cones and signs around the neighborhood.

      Questions:
      1.)  Are residents
      who were recently billed $$$ to fix the sidewalk going to
      now be reimbursed?

      2.) Has
      the number of building / renovation filings decreased to the
      point where our city officials are finally realizing their
      unfair "sidewalk repair" clause is costing the
      city money? (not to mention causing residents to postpone
      beautifying the neighborhood?)
