If you’re a city of Cortland resident and need help repairing your crumbling sidewalks or plow-damaged yard, the city has money and resources available to help you do so.
The Common Council approved last night (May 7) its annual $20,000 budget allocation towards residential sidewalk repairs.
Thoma Development Consultants, headquartered on Tompkins Street, is responsible for the management of the sidewalk repairs. They can be reached at 607-753-1433.
They will be out doing these repairs as time and weather allows alongside their other ongoing projects.
There are several roads under construction in the city, including sections of Groton Avenue, Madison Street and Douglas Street.
The Council also approved the implementation of a State Marchiselli Grant secured by Deputy Superintendent Nic Dovi, which will fully cover the local share of renovation projects at the intersections of Groton Ave/Floral Ave, Pleasant Street/Homer Ave, and Floral Ave/Madison St.
DPW is also going around repairing yards that may have been damaged by snow plows clearing the roads this winter.
Just give the Department of Public Works a call at (607) 756-6221 to give them your address and schedule an appointment.
Any further questions or concerns can be directed to Mayor Tobin’s Office at (607) 753-0872.
