thanks to city for quick repair on Hardie sidewalk | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"City of Renton, Department of Public Works, thank you again."

I would like to take a moment to commend the City of Renton and specifically John Kambach, street maintenance lead, and Gregg Zimmerman, director of Public Works, for the recent quick responsive action in repairing the public sidewalk north of our office on the east side of Hardie Avenue Southwest.

On Monday, Nov. 17, we reported the gaps and other problems with the sidewalk. On Tuesday, Nov. 18, a Public Works crew was out to make repairs.

Prior to the repairs, my staff and I have watched several individuals avoid the sidewalk and venture out into the roadway on their motorized scooters or traverse with their walkers up and down the hill on the narrow shoulder on the west side of Hardie Avenue Southwest.

Here forward, we’ll try to do our part to be good citizens and keep the sidewalk litter and obstacle free as we are concerned about the frail city residents who frequent it. Shame on us for not calling the city sooner.

City of Renton, Department of Public Works, thank you again.

Beth McDaniel,
