The City of Huntington’s Public Works Department is almost finished with the fall portion of its sidewalk replacement program.
Mayor Steve Williams proposed and Huntington City Council approved $100,000 in funding for a pilot sidewalk replacement program in fiscal year 2017 to get the program started. The program was so successful that the $100,000 funding level continued for fiscal year 2018 and fiscal year 2019.
The Public Works Department enters into agreements with property owners whereby the property owner pays for the concrete and the city provides the labor and all other equipment needed for the replacement project. Since fall 2016, the Public Works Department has completed 119 sidewalk replacement projects, totaling 7,143 linear feet, or 1.35 miles.
The Public Works Department is taking sidewalk replacement requests for spring 2019. Property owners who would like to make arrangements to replace their sidewalk should contact the City Clerk’s Office at 304-696-5530.
