The City allocates funds to eliminate tripping hazards on public sidewalks throughout the City. Murray City has a computer-based inventory of all the City sidewalks and the Engineering Department will prioritize this inventory so that areas with the highest concentration of tripping hazards and high pedestrian use will be repaired first.
This work will be contracted out on a yearly basis with as many hazards repaired as funds allow. It is anticipated that this project will continue from year to year until all hazards are repaired. This process is no cost to the resident.
