Take to task for July 20

New item-DeKalb County

Lou Rudolph wants to see a storm drain repaired quickly.

“This dangerous storm drain is located on Millwood Court in unincorporated DeKalb County, and has been in this state for approximately two years. This street is home to small children, Pangborn Swim & Tennis Club and is very busy during the summer. If my dog or a child, stepped on the sign he would likely fall into the hole it is covering,” Rudolph wrote. We sent the item to the county and will keep you updated.

New item-Ga. 400

Deanna Maust of John’s Creek hopes a huge hole can soon be fixed.

“Your column is very good. It is a great way to have issues taken care of on our many commutes. Please look into the large hole which has developed on the southbound exit ramp onto Haynes Bridge Road from 400. It is located on the right edge of the ramp at a curved area. If a car went into it, the damage would be severe,” she said.

We sent the item to GDOT and will let you know when it’s fixed.

New item-DeKalb County

A minister is wondering what is going on along a stretch of road in DeKalb County.

“I have lived in a development off Katie Kerr Drive in Decatur for a little more than four and a half years.

In that time DeKalb County Watershed Management has been at Ashbury Heights Road and Katie Kerr Drive at least five times per year, if not more, with four or five large trucks, bulldozers, back hoes, and at least 20 men,” wrote the Rev. Kimberly LeVert. She said they do the same “repair” every time- water is turned off, street and yards are dug up, dirt is replaced, new stones placed in the ditch, and straw spread around on the mud, water comes back on after several hours of interrupted service.

“If they are going to come on a regular basis, they could bring a mower with them and mow the thigh-high grass on the other side of Katie Kerr,” she added.

We sent the problem to our contact at DeKalb County to see if the puzzle could be solved.
