    to adjust the style to people's taste

    Hello.

    For some time now, the authority in our little town has been watching people's walking habits and laying pavements according to their wishes.

    I would like to express the thought by saying "More and more often the authority in our little is adjusting the style of pavements to inhabitants' taste" - I have ignored the issue of grammatical tense.

    What do you think of my attempt to express the thought marked in bold type?

    Thank you.

    Your first sentence is better, even if you put the missing word back into the second.
