I wonder if you guys can point me in the right direction. My tiny neighborhood has been pretty much ignored when it comes to road and sidewalk construction. The sidewalks are now so bad, some of them slanted to one side and there is no way someone in a wheel chair or power chair would be able to use them. So my question is: Who exactly would I have to call in order to get someone out here to look at the issues? Any help would be great. Thanks!

It is up to the property owner to maintain right-of-way abutting their property, including sidewalks.

as a contractor I can understand your frustration! I would suggest you first attempt to take it up with HOA, if that doesnt get you anywhere you may want to try the city's Code Compliance Office they should be able to get you in the right direction.

Also contact your city council office. Get together with other residents so the office is aware of the specific area.

Sidewalks are either owned by the city or county. Call 311 or Bexar County Public Works depending on where you live. I'd also second contacting your city council office if in the city.

Thanks for your tips, everyone. I'm sure these sidewalks are hurting the property values of the houses. That might make my neighbors motivated enough to get people to come out here and take a look.
