The City of Los Angeles decided to re-pave the street in front of an apartment property of mine. They removed many old layers before adding the new asphalt. Now there is a 3 to 5 inch curb my tenants must drive up to enter the property.
No one wanted to deal with me and the issues so I drove on over to my local Councilman's office and filed a complaint. Their head project engineer was supposed to contact me. Have you heard from him yet? I haven't either.
The nice Councilman's office staff that that maybe I'm crazy. Like that was an intended outcome to divert water migration. I had to explain and show them that I'm a State Licensed Contractor A & B, so I can work on city roads myself if necessary.
It looks like I"m going to give my city a mandatory 30 day notice, pull a permit and then sue them in small claims court for the repair. Or they can surprise me and fix their sub-par job.
Or my second choice is drive down to City Hall and pay someone their standard Bribe to make a phone call and have street maintenance effect the repair. They need to cut out a section between the street and sidewalk and re-slope it for access and drainage.
This is one of my 3 buildings that sits across from a public school. Children and parents use my curt to access the driveway going and leaving the school. Someone will trip, fall and break an leg or ankle. Who do you thing the injured party will sue? Not the City...... --47.156.xx.xx
