B. Cost: The owner of the abutting or adjoining property to said sidewalk shall have the duty to construct, repair, or replace said sidewalk, at his own cost and expense, upon receiving notification from the City.

Prior to said construction, the owner shall advise the City of the date and time of said construction, and shall further coordinate with the City for the construction of adjoining curb and/or gutter. The City shall be responsible for the cost of the construction of the curb and gutter. However, the City Council shall have the discretion to construct curb and gutter, and/or to determine if curb and gutter are needed, and if determined to not be needed, the City shall have no responsibility to construct the same.
