there is an article about my grandmother and her basement that was DESTROYED this past May. The sewer pipes that were on the city property burst...into her basement. Everything had to be ripped out.
The city sent people out to her home to inspect the problem, and even told her in writing that it was their problem -- not hers. And now...they won't fix her basement, saying it isn't their probem.
Check out the article here... and please leave some nice comments so those that run the city can see that they should own up to their problems and follow through for citizens.
