Hutto City Council pushed forward sidewalk repairs in the Hutto Parke neighborhood, approving a contract with Dig Dug Construction LLC on Feb. 1.

What residents should know

As part of the city's sidewalk maintenance program, $144,262 was approved for the repairs in Hutto Parke. The project is expected to be completed within 90 days from the date of the contract.

Hutto Parke was selected as one of the first neighborhoods to receive repairs as the area does not meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards, Director of Public Works Rick Coronado said.

In 2023, the Department of Public Works allocated over $10,000 for sidewalk maintenance. This year, the department aims to repair or replace an additional 2,000 linear square feet, Coronado said.

The city is also assessing the neighborhoods most in need and exploring additional funding options.

Hutto's budget for fiscal year 2023-24 allocates $250,000 for sidewalk maintenance.

One more thing

Mayor Mike Snyder emphasized residents are not responsible for covering the costs of sidewalk repairs in front of their homes or properties. Unlike many other cities, Hutto assumes the financial responsibility for that maintenance.

Residents can submit pictures and safety concerns to the department of public works, and these will be added to the priority list, Coronado said.
