    City starts accepting applicants Jan. 9 for sidewalk repairs
    Today is the first day the city will be accepting applications for its popular shared cost sidewalk program. Property owners share the cost of sidewalk repair with the city. Thousands of Chicagoans have been a part of the program, whose cost per square foot charged to property owners is well below what a private contractor would charge.
  • What I don't understand is why do the home owners share the responsibility for paying half of the repair cost for the City's side walk?!!!
