City commission discusses sidewalk resolutions

The Madison City Commission has approved a resolution for the city’s 2023 sidewalk repair improvements and acknowledged a resolution for the city’s 2023 sidewalk improvement project.

During their meeting Monday, commissioners approved a resolution of necessity outlining the areas where property owners need to make necessary sidewalk repairs.  Ryan Hegg, City Director of Engineering and Community Development, told commissioners how the process for the repairs works.

Hegg said that there are 58 areas where repairs are needed, and he said that the majority of the repairs are fairly minor.

Commissioners Monday also acknowledged a resolution of necessity for those included in the city’s 2023 sidewalk improvement project.  This includes areas where new sidewalks will need to be installed, based on the recommendations of the city’s sidewalk committee.  

Those areas include the south side of Northwest 2nd Street from Highland to Farmer Avenue, and South Highland Avenue from Southwest 3rd Street south to the Madison Public Works building driveway.  It also includes Northeast 4th Street from North Washington to North Prairie Avenues, North Summit Avenue from Northeast Third to Northeast 4th Streets, and 222 North Chicago Avenue.  

A hearing on the sidewalk resolution will be held during the commission’s next meeting on December 19th.
