City to fix woman's broken sidewalk

Posted at 5:24 PM, Mar 25, 2016

A woman who has been living in her Detroit home for decades says her sidewalk is dangerous and she's been trying to get the city to fix it - without any luck.

When walking on the block its hard not to trip on this sidewalk. The homeowner says it has been happening for years and she's been trying to get it fixed.

Today she called us, we called the city, and they came right away.

Seventy-three-year-old Esther Nedd found out the good news today - the city will be fixing the sidewalk in front of her house. It has been a problem for years.

Esther has been living at the home on the 3000 block of Bassett in Detroit for 48-years.

Ahe says she took her income tax-return money and hired someone to do it a few years ago. But, the sidewalk remained a problem- one she couldn’t afford to fix on her own.

We called the city on this Good Friday and they showed up to Esther's home. They say they will be fixing the sidewalk.

They say they will be taking care of it no later than Tuesday.
