16.04.010 Sidewalk repair requirements--Property owner’s duty to the public.

It is unlawful for any owner of any real property in the City, other than the City itself, fronting on any portion of a public street, alley, or way, to allow any portion of the sidewalk adjacent to the property to be out of repair. Said owner must at all times keep such sidewalk in such condition that it will not endanger persons or property passing thereon and will not interfere with public convenience in the use thereof. Said owner owes a duty to members of the public to keep said sidewalk in a safe condition. If said owner fails to maintain said sidewalk in a safe condition, and a person sustains injury or damage as a result of said failure, then the owner shall be liable to such person for the resulting injury or damage. “Sidewalk” as used in this section has the same meaning as stated in Berkeley Municipal Code Section 1.04.010. (Ord. 7184-NS § 1, 2011: Ord. 582-NS § 1, 1918)
