A letter to our Public Works Engineering Division's Elton Orozco:
I’m writing to thank you for arranging the water remediation for the sidewalk in front of 918 W State St.! In the months since the sidewalk was redone, there has been no standing water a few hours after the end of the rain. The drain in the parkway now works as intended by the engineers, and I am certain that the coming months will demonstrate that the ice hazard has been abated.
Sam and I are both very pleased by the outcome, and very much appreciate your efforts to bring the problem to the attention of the State of Illinois. Your willingness to come in person for a site visit was instrumental to the repair of a long-standing problem. We give you our heartfelt thanks!
