Isn't it the City's responsibility to repair all sidewalks?

The California Streets and Highways Code (Sections 5610-5618) places the responsibility for the maintenance of the sidewalks on the owner of the property adjoining the sidewalk. As a service, the City provides the sidewalk repair project as a way to relieve the burden of maintenance from single family homeowners. All other property owners (e.g., owners of apartments, commercial properties, condominium complexes, churches, etc.) are responsible for any necessary repairs to the sidewalk adjoining their property.
