The City of Los Angeles is proposing mandating sidewalk repairs and forcing home sellers to repair unsafe, broken sidewalks before a home sale can close escrow- known as a \"Point of Sale\" ordinance. Average sidewalk repairs could cost property owners more than $3,000. Home owners are already paying for safe sidewalks via property taxes. In a citywide survey conducted last year, Neighborhood Councils stressed that sidewalk repair is a quality of life issue that is important to all residents. Neighborhood Councils also expected the City to live up to its obligation. We need your support to ensure that a reasonable plan is implemented and that ALL sidewalks are repaired, finally. We need your voice NOW to see to it that the point of sale proposal dies. We, the undersigned, as residents of Los Angeles, California, call on the City of Los Angeles City Council to enforce the vote taken on January 15, 1973 as the Sidewalk Repair Program. The council reaffirmed their decision to make the City responsible for the repairs and requested the Bureau of Street Maintenance to prepare a budget for the program. The City under Government Code Section 40401 may choose to pay for some or all of the costs using any funds at it\'s disposal that it is not otherwise prohibited from using.
