In efforts to protect pedestrian safety in Waverly, the City will begin enforcement of Municipal Code 8-202

8-202  SIDEWALKS; NOTICE TO CLEAN; ASSESSMENT. Notice to remove any encroachment or substance from a sidewalk shall be made upon the owner, agent or occupant of the abutting property, said notice to demand the removal of such encroachment and/or substance. Notice may be given by personal service or by publication. In the event the property owner or occupant refuses or neglects to remove all such encroachments within: (a) twenty-four (24) hours after personal service, or (b) within five (5) days if notice is by publication, then the City may cause such encroachments and/or substances to be removed, and the cost of such removal to be paid out of the Street Fund. The Governing Body shall assess the cost of the notice and removal against such abutting property as a “special sidewalk assessment,” which shall be levied and collected as special taxes in addition to general revenue taxes, and shall be subject and shall draw interest from the date of the assessment. (Amended by Ord. No. 07-17, 12/17/07)
