The Afton City Council has began reviewing our ordinances at the council meetings this year. Some we have updated and others we felt just needed to be enforced. In June 2014 the council started reviewing the sidewalk ordinance. It was one that we felt needed to be enforced, below is a brief description of part of the ordinance. For the full version click here.

It is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to maintain in a safe and hazard-free condition any sidewalk outside the lot and property lines and inside the curb lines or traveled portion of the public street. If the abutting property owner does not maintain sidewalks as required, the Council may serve notice on such owner, by certified mail, requiring the owner to repair, replace or reconstruct sidewalks within a reasonable time and if such action is not completed within the time stated in the notice, the Council may require the work to be done and assess the costs against the abutting property for collection in the same manner as a property tax.

The Council may order the construction of permanent sidewalks upon any street or court in the City and may specially assess the cost of such improvement to abutting property owners in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 384 of the Code of Iowa. No person shall remove, reconstruct or install a sidewalk unless such person has obtained a permit from the City and has agreed in writing that said removal, reconstruction or installation will comply with all ordinances and requirements of the City for such work. If a sidewalk connects or abuts another sidewalk, the sidewalk must be replaced if removed.
