LinkedIn Discussion Group: Sidewalk Maintenance and Streets and Highways Code Sec. 5610

Many agencies are unaware of California Streets & Highways (S&H) Code Section 5610, a statute that allows members with sidewalks to transfer the risk and expense of sidewalk repairs and maintenance to adjacent private property owners. However, the statute doesn’t absolve agencies of all responsibility for inspecting and maintaining sidewalks. Authority members can share their thoughts on implementing and enforcing a program consistent with Section 5610 on the Authority’s LinkedIn discussion group page.
