Julia Ousley has lived in Coppertree Commons for 9 years, and every winter she deals with dangerous sidewalks on East Miller Road.
“I’ve almost fell twice, I’ve had a few gentlemen they kinda catch me before I did… and that’s not right”
For years she has complained to the City Council, Code Enforcement and posted on Lansing’s Facebook page, but nothing has been done.
The Public Service Department said if there is another incident of unshoveled sidewalks, they will have the problem solved in 48 hours or less.
“About five years ago the city enacted changes to the ordinance that allows the city to clear sidewalks if the residents don’t do them and charge the property owners, and if we hear about a problem we will investigate”- Christopher Mumby Deputy Director of Public Service
The city charges $149.00 for the first 20 minutes, and $70 for every additional 20 minutes.
If there is a sidewalk in your area that is being neglected report the address with Public Service at (517) 483-4455
