Letter to the Editor: Patience required for pavement repair

DEAR News Of The Area,

TO the Boambee senior citizen who tripped on the footpath (NOTA January 26).

Dear Margaret, I hope you have patience. determination and dogmatic hats to put on in order to have your trip hazard fixed by City of Coffs Harbour.

I know a 65 year old woman who tripped and fractured her ankle on a hazard in Boultwood Street, despite at least eight requests to fix it.

It actually took five – yes that’s five – years for them to fix it.

Luckily you did a story in the paper which will probably see it done for you a whole lot sooner than that one could otherwise hope!

Coffs Coast.
