Lexington is the only city I have lived in where the homeowner is required to fix the sidewalks. Even though there is an allotted “reimbursement,” what are our taxes for? Our road has numerous potholes, cracks, drainage issues and resurfacing needs all along it, and it’s been like that since we moved in a year ago. Now, however, the city has decided to come out and spray-paint marks on the sidewalk sections in front of our house that it wants repaired.
Maybe next year city workers will mark the potholes and failed areas where drainage is needed, and the city will require us to pay a company or to fix the roads with our own hands.
