Thanks to a grant from the Batesville Preservation Association. City of Batesville crews will begin working in the downtown area making point repairs to existing sidewalks. The focus will be to remove as many trip hazard locations as possible. The intent is to improve safety and walkability for pedestrians in the residential downtown area. The grant provided will allow repairs to occur on multiple downtown streets and will continue until the grant funds are exhausted. Please be cautious and patient as you walk in the downtown area while the repairs are in progress. We appreciate the generosity of the Batesville Preservation Association for providing funding to make this possible.
