This law currently forces property owners to maintain public sidewalks fronting their property even if the damage to the sidewalk has been caused by the negligence of others. It imposes an unfair burden on property owners to take on the costs of maintenance of public property, when in nearly all other cases, maintenance of public property is the responsibility of the city, having access to both the pooled resources of the community and who hold the ability to tax and sell bonds for such repairs.
