I am as you know in a wheel-chair, my wheel-chair is my only way of going to the store and after medicines when I am completely out, yet the city continues to not repair the sidewalks, I guess its more important to place a new statue next to the city building/ police station as opposed to making the sidwalks safe to take a $16,000 wheel-chair on, you can take one on a brick walk but it is not especially safe nor is the same wheel-chair being in the road, as it makes it danger...ous for both people driving cars and the person in a wheel-chair and hickory and main is especially dangerous as for the most part people tend to ignore the stop sign that is on the west part of the intersection and then there are people that obey the stop signs but instead of stopping at the white line placed well before the crosswalk they instead block 3/4 of the crosswalk even if they have a clear field of vision such as walnut and main this is not only unsafe for everyone but I find it to be extremely rude did they learn to drive in Calfornia?? I am already 1/2 paralyzed.

I continuance of my previous post the city saw fit to replace the brick sidewalks from greenwood cemetery to Maple and have wheel chair access to all, there are still severely broken are rough sidewalks from greenwood cemetery to the 900th block of south main where the sidewalks end they should have sidewalks through tamarack and down south main street just for everyones safety as people tend to go right through the stop signs as if they were not even there and the speeding that I personally witnessed is ridiculous then there are the still brick sidewalk on both sides of the road on north man from ash street, which are barely passable and the are virtually no sidewalks from 14th ave going towards Kroger on Chestnut street, it would be nice to correct these problems for everyone because walking in the street is dangerous to the pedestrian and the driver or person in a wheel chair
