The Waldens, who live in Arlington, say they just want their roof fixed.

Sammie said his family paid more than $4,000 for a new roof in April 2011 and it began leaking months later. He said they've had no luck with the contractor.

FCN called the contractor and the city's construction trades qualifying board. They monitor locally licensed contractors. The city agency says code a compliance investigator will contact both sides to try to get this resolved.

Near the beaches on Beach Boulevard, Robert said he wants sidewalks in his mobile home park.

A front office representative said since it's corporate owned, Robert and others have to fill out a form and corporate will look into things like costs, zoning.

If you want a new sidewalk where you live, the City of Jacksonville website says a way to request one is via a letter to the Public Works director.

Proposed locations must meet certain criteria and have at least 75 percent of households and/or businesses in the proposed area sign a petition. Once approved, it goes on a construction waiting list as funding allows.
