Washburn sidewalks

Residents walk on the streets, avoiding the sidewalks, Monday in Washburn. The City Council discussed the issues of obstructed and deteriorating sidewalks Monday at its meeting.

Debate over fixing or replacing deteriorating sidewalks is swirling again in Washburn — as is the conundrum of how to pay for it.

Linda Coleman and Connie Wroblewski, who appeared via video, raised the issue to the council Monday night, following up on a request by Girl Scouts two months ago to take a good look at safety concerns posed by grass-choked, uneven sidewalks — or people walking in the streets to avoid them.
