Fixed: Decatur (DeKalb)

We love hearing about your issues throughout the metropolitan region, but we’re even more excited when we can actually help get your issues fixed by working with the various local governments.

This week, we learned that two items had been repaired.

Earlier, we had told you about Anne Palmer’s issue with a dangerous pipe that was taken care of by the county. This week, we learned they had further addressed the issue and improved the area near the formerly broken pipe.

“I have emailed DeKalb County Roads and Drainage, and have left voice messages to no avail. There is and has been a jagged pipe which is quite hazardous to tires. It is located in the right lane in front of a silver fire hydrant at or near 3640 N Druid Hills Road, and a short distance as one turns right onto said road from Asbury Court,” she wrote.

“In addition to replacing the water valve, the county also repaired the road near the fire hydrant,” DeKalb officials said.

Item: Decatur (DeKalb)

Last week, we told you about Lynn Spent’s dangerous situation that she wanted fixed in DeKalb County.

“This two-foot deep hole in the sidewalk has been there since last June. It is located on the north side of North Decatur Road at the busy Clairmont Avenue intersection. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic here. I recall contacting DeKalb County in June. It has obviously not been repaired. I fear someone is going to get seriously hurt,” she wrote.

“The utility box located near the North Decatur Road and Clairmont Avenue intersection has been repaired,” said county officials.
