The sidewalk in front of my house is uneven. Will the City come fix it?

The adjacent property owner is generally responsible for the maintenance and repair of the sidewalk. You may report the uneven sidewalk to the Public Service Department at (517) 483-4455.  An inspector will be dispatched to see if an asphalt patch needs to be installed to temporarily smooth uneven sidewalk area in order to help prevent a trip hazard.
