What is the name of your state? Nebraska

Section 17-567 and so on.

"City has exclusive control of streets and ample means to maintain them in a safe condition, and is liable for its failure so to do."

If they are liable what are they liable for?
Accidents? Or is there as a resident, a way to force them legally via this law to open up the street? "There are flowers planted in the street about 10 ft" (small town gravel street, what can I say) The flowers in the alley are planted about 4ft (however they have until the 25th of August to move).

This area has large trucks and city street vehicles that use it all the time.

Thank you ahead time for any input.

I will be posting in other area's about other legal matters that do not pertain to this situation but in a round about way are all included in the same problems we have been having over the last 5 years.
