A. Purpose: This article is enacted for the purpose of promoting the health, safety and welfare of the inhabitants of the city by keeping sidewalks, curb, gutters, drive approaches and appurtenances, such as parking bays and carriage walks in safe, usable condition. To this end it is deemed the responsibility of owners to notify the city of any defective concrete existing at their property and, upon replacement of the defective concrete, to pay an amount equal to the resulting benefit to the improved property.
B. Benefit: It is hereby found and determined that the replacement of defective concrete will result in an improvement benefiting the adjoining property in the amount of fifty percent (50%) of the total replacement cost in the case of property used as a residence or residences, and one hundred percent (100%) of the total replacement cost in the case of property used as multiple dwelling units, an apartment house, a business, or for any purpose other than as a residence. The difference in resulting benefits as compared to the cost of replacement is based upon a finding of the city council of factors indicating substantially greater benefits to properties used for the purpose other than as residences.
