The City is responsible for the maintenance of all sidewalks and pedestrian walkways in the City of Vernon. Each spring the Operations Department conducts an inspection of all sidewalks and pedestrian walkways to identify deficiencies. These deficiencies are prioritized and the highest priority deficiencies are repaired with funds provided in the annual budget by Council.
The City uses a variety of strategies to repair the sidewalks including grinding, patching, mud jacking, and removing and replacing sections of sidewalk. The City crews prep the sidewalk, and the concrete forming and finishing is normally completed by a local cement finishing contractor.
