City staff shall update an inventory of existing benches, noting location, inscription/ownership information, and condition (wooden slats, metal legs, hardware and engravings) of the benches.
Holders of existing benches that are in need of repair/replacement or payment of maintenance fee will be contacted. If the bench holder is unreachable after being noticed, the bench location shall be made available to person(s) on the waiting list. (Due to the popularity of this program the waitlist has been closed and will remain closed for the foreseeable future.)
New bench locations will only be considered by the next person on the waiting list and only for approved locations. Public Works staff will review the location and determine if the site is appropriate (ADA considerations, etc.).
