Sidewalks, to me, are one of those things that a city or county should maintain, and not a property owner, but not according to Ventura County. I received a letter from Ventura County in September that a contractor they hired would be coming to repair the walkways, and I had a choice of doing it myself or paying to have their contractor do it. I chose their contractor and paid the invoice that came with the letter.
What I don’t understand is that the county letter said the contractor would be repairing sidewalks throughout Oak Park. Yet, the only sidwalks I see marked up like in the photo, are on my street, and not elsewhere in the neighborhood. It is one of those things that makes you go, “Hmmmmm….”
Just for fun, here is a hit from 1946, Cement Mixer, by the Alvino Rey Orchestra.
