+ HaysFreePress.com June 14, 2017 Page 1D BY LESLY DE LEON The inability to secure a way to maintain sidewalks in Kyle led city leaders to consider different options. But with the possibility of having to raise taxes to foot the bill for sidewalk repairs, city leaders are now trying to find the most cost effective way to accomplish that goal. According a 1964 city ordinance, maintenance and repair of sidewalks is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. While homeowners have the responsibility, however, sidewalks are not being maintained. Officials held concerns the condition of some sidewalks is a public safety issue. To resolve the issue, officials are considering three options. One option would require homeowners to retain responsibility, while a second option would require the city to assist homeowners in repairing sidewalks. A third option could be the city taking on the full responsibility. At a meeting in April, council members discussed the city possibly contracting a private concrete company to repair sidewalks at a reduced cost to homeowners. CL Concrete Construction was one company that submitted a bid to the city. Under this proposal, homeowners would pay the city to have sidewalk sections added to a repair list. When enough repairs were indentified, the private contractor would repair all the cited sidewalks. Councilmember David Wilson said he's concerned that not enough homeowners would be willing to participate, or homeowners would want their sidewalks immediately repaired. At the June 6 meeting, council members discussed the city perhaps taking on the responsibility. Wilson, who presented the proposal, said the city couldnot consider such an option if there wasn't a cost-effective way for it to repair sidewalks. Wilson proposed that the city use cost-effective technology and methods to take full responsibility of repairing and maintaining sidewalks. It would be for cost effective for the city to have the sidewalks repaired than homeowner repairing it on their own, Wilson said. It's too costly for homeowners and results m varying quality, he said. Wilson suggested a city sidewalk maintenance budget of $50,000 a year. Much like street maintenance, sidewalks would have to be repaired at a regular, gradual basis, KYLE SIDEWALKS, 2D Public Notices CITY OF BUDA JOINT PUBLIC HEARING OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND PLANNING & ZONING COMMISSION The City of Buda City Council and Planning & Zoning Commission will hold a joint public hearing in accordance with Texas Local Government Code Section 211.007(d), beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 in the City Council Chambers at Buda City Hall, 121 Main St., Buda, Texas 78610 to receive written and oral comments in regard to adoption of a Unified Development Code and Official Zoning Map of the City of Buda to replace the current Unified Development Code and Official Zoning Map.
