Prairie Village Citizens' "Bill of Rights" for Public Improvement Projects
Here are your rights when public improvement work is done on your street.
- You have the same rights and privileges as your neighbors. All residents will be treated equitably. No preferential treatment will be given to any resident for any reason.
- You have the right to have the work performed on your street in a timely, professional manner.
- You have the right to have your concerns addressed promptly. The City will address your concerns within 2 work days from the time you contact one of the project representatives. If a problem cannot be immediately taken care of, then the course of action to address your concern will be formulated within that time.
- You have the right to live your life in a reasonably normal fashion during construction. The workers are professional, skilled craftspeople who perform their job in a difficult environment.
