Repair Code E (3)Every other year, on even calendar years, the Engineering Department inspects the city's public sidewalks. Approximately half of Marion's sidewalks are inspected for code compliance and to notify adjacent owners to correct deficiencies.

Staff inspect the sidewalks and place pink paint on sidewalk panels that are deemed deficient per City Code of Ordinances, Chapter 141.

Notification will be made by mail and owners will have typically until August to make repairs. Properties not complying will receive legal notice and potentially a legal process to provide for repairs.
