Oakley Sidewalk Surprise

One of my absolute favorite things about being an Architect and Real Estate Developer is that I am always learning something new. That said, I was not very happy to learn when the City of Cincinnati does repairs to the 'public sidewalk' (at their sole discretion without the consent of the property owner), it is the property owner who is charged with the bill. They do give the property owner the choice of paying the entire amount up front, or rolling it into future tax bills at a specified interest rate, but I highly dislike both options. Anyways, just thought it was worth making a public service announcement about this for any Cincinnati property owners that might fall victim to this same fate.
