What Happens After I Call or Email

The Public Works Department:

  • Investigates every sidewalk concern in a timely matter

  • Makes temporary or permanent repairs as soon as possible

  • Notes when a more permanent repair can be completed

Sidewalk Replacement Program

Each year the Public Works Department work with the Engineering Department to develop a list of locations where the sidewalk requires replacement rather than a minor repair.  The Engineering Department uses this list to develop a plan for the replacement of sidewalks. Based on the amount of money available in the budget set by Council the work is tendered and carried out by a contractor. The Municipality of Chatham-Kent makes every effort to make the construction zones safe and efficient for the contractor and for the general public.
