If bugging the city won’t make a sidewalk appear, maybe a piece of wood will do?
This said state of affairs appears outside a blighted property at 1345 Ellsworth St.
Philadelinquency checked in on this property back in December and found that L&I has actually been working on getting the property back in decent condition since 2008, moving at that time to start sheriff sale proceedings.
L&I slapped the building owner with a “doors and windows” violation at the end of last year, which explains the new looking windows in the picture above. But now L&I says that Streets Department is responsible for replacing the sidewalk, PDQ said.
Hmm, that was in December. Not looking good…
