Chatham-Kent Public Works has secured the services of a contractor to conduct sidewalk inspections for trip hazards in all communities in Chatham-Kent commencing June 6.
During the process, Chatham-Kent residents will see a golf cart with inspection equipment driving on municipal sidewalks. Permission has been granted under the Traffic and Parking bylaws for personnel working on behalf of Sidewalks Plus.
The second part of the contract is to have a tractor with specialty equipment remove the identified trip hazards found and marked during initial inspections.
The equipment will be moving through Chatham-Kent for about a month, depending on weather conditions.
Pedestrians are asked to avoid the work zones during operations.
