By city ordinance, sidewalk maintenance is the responsibility of the property owner having frontage. In some communities, sidewalks are the responsibility of the city; in others, sidewalks are the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. Hannibal falls into this latter category.
Despite the responsibility for sidewalks lying with the property owner, Hannibal does operate a sidewalk program, whereby the city will remove the existing sidewalk at the owner’s request, allowing the property owner to then construct the new replacement sidewalk. The program is designed to make repairs more convenient and less expensive for the property owner.
Residents wishing to pursue this course should contact the street department at 573-221-0111 ext. 216 or use the form below (and select "Sidewalk Program" from the drop-down box) to schedule this service. Beyond simply scheduling a date for service, the street department can also provide property owners the appropriate sidewalk specifications (width, depth, type of material, etc.) for the new sidewalk.
