Can I hire my own contractor or do the work myself?
Based upon Middleton City Ordinance 8.03(2) sidewalk replacement work must be done by a person, firm or corporation whose qualifications to perform such work have been approved by the City Engineer.

As the property owner, you have the option of causing the work to be performed by a qualified person, firm or corporation. Any work caused to be done by the property owner shall meet City standards, and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The removal and replacement, Mud Jacking, and Saw Cutting of sidewalk sections will require a Street Opening Permit; this is a no cost permit for tracking projects. While the rehabilitation of the public sidewalks such as filling small cracks etc, can be conducted by the property owner and does not require a Street Opening Permit.
