Residents hammer DOT over sidewalk repairs

THE BRONX - Some Bronx residents are battling the city's Department of Transportation (DOT) over sidewalk repairs on Muliner Avenue in Pelham.

According to homeowners, they're getting slapped with violations as they wait for the agency's contractors to show up and fix their cracked walkways. City law gives residents 45 days to start repairs if hiring a private contractor, otherwise the DOT may do the work and bill the homeowner.

Dobora Ann Jaffe says she went with the city contractor because it's cheaper, but that she's been fined while waiting for him. She says she also hasn't been able to get answers on when the repairs will happen.

The DOT told News 12 The Bronx that it's up to inspectors to decide which sidewalks need repairs and it wouldn't say when crews would start work in the Pelham community.
