How does the payment program work?

Shortly after completion of your sidewalk repair, you will receive a letter from the Division of Sidewalks detailing some helpful information on how to maintain your new concrete sidewalk. Included will be an invoice summarizing the total cost of the work that was completed. You have several options at that point:

  • Pay the full amount due, directly to the Sidewalk Division by December 31st. If not, the Receiver of Taxes will bill you the following spring.
  • Pay the Receiver of Taxes the full amount due, or it will automatically be placed on the five-year payment plan and be included in future tax bills. Please note, if a lending institution or an individual other than yourself pays your taxes, the bill will be forwarded to that party.
