Editor, the Advocate:
I am concerned about the sidewalk on East Airline Road between 3100 and 3103 and Sam Houston Drive. A new pole was placed at this location, which is not the problem; it is the dirt that was piled up on the sidewalk covering the width of the sidewalk. I travel this sidewalk heading toward the Texas Drive Inn and cannot go around this dirt without putting myself in danger because I use an electric scooter. This dirt has been there about six months, and I have tried calling different individuals about it with no results. I'm hoping someone will read this and realize it's still there and causing citizens trouble. Please see if this can be cleared up soon, as I really like going to the Texas Drive Inn, and there is no place for me to safely cross the road but the light.
