Statement by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh:
“Sidewalks are for the people, and they are every bit as important to our quality of life and economy as the roads they are next to. From children walking to school to seniors going shopping, the municipal sidewalk maintenance program will benefit all Syracuse residents. In just a few weeks, we will begin doing away with dangerous unwalkable sidewalks in Syracuse. The old complaint-driven system will be replaced by a data-driven, well-planned and executed approach. We will make this City safer and relieve property owners of the burden of high cost sidewalk repairs. I commend the Syracuse Common Council on approving the program.”
