The Village of Croton’s new sidewalk replacement program began last week. Under the sidewalk improvement program, the Village will contribute 40% of the cost of the replacement of a property owner’s sidewalk.
Cost-sharing programs for sidewalks have been offered by the Village from time to time. This latest version was unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees on March 4th and funded in the capital budget adopted in April.
The Board believes that the latest program can be done more efficiently thanks to the increasing capacity of our Department of Public Works. The DPW will now do the sidewalk work in-house without having to hire an outside contractor.
The program is open to owners with existing sidewalks. Residents who no longer have a sidewalk that can document that a sidewalk existed on their property may also participate.
Residents interested in the sidewalk replacement program should contact the Village Engineer’s Office at 914-271-478.
