Can the contractor replace my driveway?

Replacement of private driveways is wholly the responsibility of the property owner. The contractors who bid on the Village's 50/50 Sidewalk Program usually perform smaller private projects as well as municipal projects and their phone number is made available upon request of the residents. The cost for this work must be negotiated like any other private contractual work. In addition, as with any other private work, permits are required by the Village and obtained in the Community Development Department at the Village Hall.

The Village always recommends that a homeowner receive at least three estimates for work prior to signing any contract for construction projects. The Village will assume no responsibility for coordinating, inspecting, or warranting private work which is performed by the contractor other than that provided through the permit process.
