TAKE TO TASK

Patty Cowie is concerned about a sidewalk.

“Sidewalk and street repairs at the intersection of Peachtree Road NE and Club Drive have been in progress for several months. This construction necessitates pedestrians having to walk onto busy Peachtree Road to get across the intersection. This is an extremely dangerous situation. We rarely see any work being done on this job,” she wrote.

We sent the item to Atlanta officials and will let you know the outcome.

Steve Huhman is tired of a messy water issue.

“There is a gravel and dirt parking lot on the south side of West Wieuca Road, adjacent to the Chastain Park golf course and the NFO sports complex. It sits well below the grade level of the road. For about a year, there has been a constant water flow into the lot, regardless of weather,” he wrote.

Huhman said it makes the lot muddy and messy.

“The source of the water isn’t clear, but a likely source could be the city water system generally, perhaps related to a fire hydrant that sits beside the road above the area where the water appears to originate. It would be a non-trivial improvement for all users of the lot to have this cleared up, and the owner of the source of the water leak would surely benefit from having it identified and rectified,” he added.

We sent this to the city and will keep you updated.

Gloria Young is tired of speeders.

“The speed limit in the Rock Chapel Elementary School zone is 25 mph. Every morning while going to work, on Rock Chapel Road and Hwy. 124 around 7:30 a.m., I feel like my life could be the victim of road rage. Not only are vehicles passing me at speeds dramatically over 25, but frustrated drivers behind me are tailgating, flashing their lights, honking horns and then cutting me off as they pass me and get back into my lane,” Young said.

She added she reported this to the DeKalb police in January, but the issue is still not resolved.

We sent the issue to DeKalb County and will let you know when the issue is addressed.
