The City of Cedar Falls receives public bids and accepts the lowest bid. Generally, the cost of having the sidewalk replaced or reconstructed by you or by a contractor of your own selection is less than having the city-hired contractor to do the work. This is not a "fixed" price and will fluctuate with the price of materials and labor depending on the time of year.
If you choose to have the city repair your sidewalk, an invoice will be mailed to you after the project has been closed out. The homeowner will have 30 days to make a payment to the city. If you fail to pay for the work within thirty (30) days, the cost of the work will then be assessed as a special assessment against your property.
