Before April, if you lived in Kansas City, Missouri and asked the city to replace or repair your sidewalk you got stuck with a bill.
Now the city is changing that. On April 4th, voters approved an $800 million infrastructure bond.
According to the city, part of the bond revenue will help pay for sidewalk repairs. Additional bond funds may also go to forgive current assessments.
A new ordinance proposed by councilman Scott Wagner would forgive outstanding debts for work that has already been done.
The ordinance will be discussed during council's Finance Committee meeting Wednesday morning.
