In Shaker Heights, residents are responsible for maintaining their sidewalks and driveway aprons. Sidewalks and driveway aprons are inspected every five years. Residents will receive a notice from the City when repairs are necessary. Residents may hire a contractor through the City who will make the repairs, but they will be charged for the work by the Public Works Department Residents may also hire their own contractor to make the repairs.
