HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A picture on our See, Click, Fix site shows a sidewalk on Peachtree Street in Huntsville. A man named Eddie posted it saying that the sidewalk is a hazard for children who walk to school. Now that summer is here, it could be a hazard for anyone walking down the street.

We checked it out and found the sidewalk raised and cracked. Huntsville Public Works checked it out and has written a work order to have it fixed.

We're hearing more and more about houses that appear vacant. Often, the issue is grass and weeds growing too high.

We took a look at a house and yard on Parklane Street in Huntsville. According to Roger's post, the fences are damaged, trees are down and there is a small forest growing in the far back. The side of the house has an open hole and the siding is falling off.

Huntsville's Community Development has assigned an investigator to look into who owns the house and who is in charge of maintaining it. The process then begins with notifying the owner and allowing a few weeks to have it cleaned up. If it isn't cleaned up, the city will then clean the yard and can put a lien on the property.
