Re "Outcry derails Rancho sidewalk measure" (The Public Eye, Sept. 8): Property owners should have to pay for the repair of sidewalks. Many sidewalks are damaged due to trees and parked vehicles on homeowners' property.
Elk Grove, Folsom, and Roseville property owners already pay for sidewalk repairs. Why should the city fund sidewalk repairs when homeowners use sidewalks daily? The longer these issues go unresolved, the more damaged our sidewalks become.
