The Town of Windsor has developed an annual Concrete Replacement Program to evaluate, inventory, and replace deteriorating curb and gutter and sidewalk. In conjunction with the Concrete Replacement Program, the Town developed a Concrete Rating Guide to provide a consistent evaluation of existing concrete conditions; this guide can be found by selecting the "Concrete Repair Guide Page" below. To have your curb and gutter and/or sidewalk evaluated for a possible replacement please contact the Engineering department at (970) 674-2400. Once the concrete is rated it will be inventoried. Concrete replacement will be prioritized based on the rating, but the annual amount of concrete that is replaced will be limited to available funding. Concrete within Capital Improvement Project areas will be considered for replacement prior to other locations in Town. In the spring of 2008, the Town Board passed an ordinance changing the Town Municipal Code such the Town pays for the full cost to replace deteriorating curb and gutter and sidewalk if the concrete is replaced by the Town. Residents may replace the curb and gutter and sidewalk at their cost, but they must obtain a Curb, Gutter, and Sidewalk Permit from the Town prior to replacement.
The fee is to pay for the operation, maintenance, administration and routine functions of the existing Town stormwater drainage facilities and for the design, right-of-way acquisition and construction or reconstruction of such existing and future stormwater drainage facilities. Sometimes a development owns and maintains some of the localized stormwater related infrastructure. In any case, the Town of Windsor has oversight of all facilities within the Town limits. In other words, whether a facility is privately owned or not, the Town is here to see that it operates properly, so as to not adversely affect downstream properties. If it doesn’t the Town may have to step in with enforcement action. The fact that some developments have privately owned facilities helps keep the monthly drainage fee lower than it otherwise would be.
The Town’s web site includes a Bid Postings and RFP's page that allows interested parties to view and download information on open requests for proposals and construction projects. This page is located under the “Quick Links” heading in the main menu or you may follow the link listed below. Included on this page is a link that allows parties to sign up for email notification of newly posted proposals and construction projects. If you have any further question, feel free to contact the Engineering department at (970) 674-2400.
