Raising cash for sidewalks in new legislation

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. - City officials admit sidewalks in Atlanta are a mess and want residents to shell out and pay for it.

The city is talking about taxing homeowners more to cover the cost of repairing sidewalks.
Councilman MMichaelBond believes increasing taxes for everyone would discourage homeowners from taking responsibility for their individual properties.

Atlanta's Public Works manager says while the fee proposal may seem high, it is consistent with what a private contractor would charge for doing the same work.
