An owner of a downtown Clinton storefront in the midst of opening a business is requesting the City Council address crumbling sidewalks adjacent to her storefront.
Melissa Morris owns the storefronts once occupied by Darvin's Barbershop Shop on the north side of Clinton Square and is requesting the City address concerns she has over sidewalks that are falling apart to the point they have resulted in an injury and are a safety hazard.
While the City has taken steps to correct the issue, she feels it is not enough and other tenants nearby are concerned. She points out they have done what they can but it is not enough.
Mayor Roger Cyrulik, who owns a cement business, explained to Morris the work would need an engineer to review and he emphasized when embarking on concrete work, you want only have to do it once.
Mayor Cyrulik told Morris they have plans to make improvements to that area but Morris had more questions about issues that will linger until then.
The Mayor assured Morris the issue is being worked on and would be fixed.
