Lima homeowners might be getting a break when it comes to the cost to repair damaged sidewalks caused by trees in the city's right of way.
Lima city council's public works committee continued its' discussion regarding whether the city might want to cut some slack to property owner's who's sidewalks have been damaged due to trees in the city's tree lawn.
Council member Teresa Adams would like to see some sort of formula worked out so the property owner would not be stuck with the entire bill as it stands now.
The public works committee recommended to the full city council that the city create a reimbursement program to cover 25 percent of the cost to pay for sidewalks damaged by root uplift. The homeowner would be responsible for the remainder of the cost.
