If your sidewalk is found to be in need of repairs, the inspector will inform you and give you a reasonable deadline within which you must file an ADA notice with the court.

The sidewalk or major public thoroughfare will be inspected and repairs made. Usually, they will be done in one of the following ways: rehabilitation or new construction, or repair to existing structures to make them compliant. You must file a notice to the court within 90 days of the end of the inspection. Sometimes, the violation goes beyond a breach of ADA regulations. In these cases, it could be more serious than a failure to properly signalize. These violations can lead to the immediate closure of the public thoroughfare or a misdemeanor ticket, or even criminal obstruction of justice.
Because your sidewalk is an older structure than either of these options, you only have one option: repair it. The concrete cracks become more brittle as the sidewalks age. The concrete cracks are eventually broken by the tree roots, which causes the concrete to deteriorate beneath them.
Public sidewalks are not only at risk from tree roots; storm drains and septic systems can also be a problem. Clogs in storm drains or septic tanks can cause water to back up into buildings. People walking on the sidewalk are exposed to water hazards. If water is allowed to enter a building via a storm drain, septic system or other means, it can cause serious structural damage. If sidewalk repairs are not done on time and in compliance with the law, it can result in severe financial consequences for property owners.
