In the case of any land abutting on any dedicated street alley, highway or public place in the Village of Fairport which does not have an existing sidewalk, the Village Board of Trustees may cause such a sidewalk to be constructed, under its direction and in accordance with Village specifications, and may levy, assess and collect the expense of the same from the owner of such land in the same manner as Village taxes are collected. In determining whether or not to waive the assessment of some or all of the expense of construction of a sidewalk on the owner of property abutting a sidewalk the Village Board of Trustees may consider such circumstances as it deems proper, taking into account any factors, which shall be specifically set forth by resolution of the Board of Trustees, including, but not limited to, the location of the sidewalk in relationship to the use of the abutting property, the benefit derived by the persons owning and/or using the abutting property from the installation of the sidewalk and the benefit derived by the public.
