Re: Sidewalk replacement program
Dear Avilla Property Owner,
The Town Council is continuing a sidewalk replacement program this spring. This is a voluntary program for residents and property owners in Avilla. We will compile a group of sidewalk construction projects and request proposals from contractors in order to obtain the lowest possible price. Anyone within the Town of Avilla is eligible and encouraged to participate in this program.
To be included in the group estimates, please submit your request to the Town Manager by May 2.
This program will make available to you a loan from the Town’s General Improvement Fund at two percent (2%) interest for a period of three (3) years or four (4%) interest for a period of five (5) years. The following options are available to you for the construction and payment of your sidewalk.
- You may use the Town approved sidewalk contractor and pay the Town in full or obtain a loan from the General Improvement Fund. (All paperwork is arranged through the Clerk-Treasurer’s office.)
- You may hire your own contractor and pay them direct. However, if you wish to obtain a loan from the General Improvement Fund, you must first receive approval from the Clerk-Treasurer’s office.
- You may complete the work yourself according to the Town’s standards. You may obtain a Town loan for the purchase of materials only.
Please contact the Clerk-Treasurer’s office for more information on financing at 897-2781.
You may contact me with questions about the sidewalk construction and construction quotes.
NOTE: Bid documents for contractors are due at the Town Hall by April 18 at 11:00 a.m.
