Streets in subdivisions, if they are not dedicated to the city, are the responsibility of homeowners.
In practical terms, this means that if your street needs repairs or paving, guess who has to pay for it? Not the city.
Very few people, when buying a house, would even think to check to see if the streets were dedicated. It’s just not on people’s radar.
Bossier City Council President David Jones said "I know by the letter of the law we're supposed to tell them tough luck, but I don't know if that's the right answer on this," he told the council.
Jones proposes that no more private streets be built in the city, and agreed with Councilman Scott Irwin that the city conduct a study to see how many private streets exist in the city limits and how the city can address the problems.
Hopefully, there won’t be too many and the city can move to help the homeowners.
