Sidewalk Repairs are Coming Soon!
A 15-year sidewalk repair plan is being developed to repair the failing sections of sidewalk throughout the City.  In 2015-2016, the City conducted an inventory of all the sidewalks in the City and noted each area that should be repaired.  The order of locations will be determined in accordance with the 2016 Bay City Housing Study.  This is an overall view that looks at needs for overall infrastructure in the City in order to determine where the work will begin and when it will be scheduled.  The plan is in development stages, but we are hoping to begin repairs by August.
