We have a friend who lives in apartments near the Menards in Fridley. She just had back surgery 4–6 months ago She does not own a car; takes the bus to work every day.

The only way for her to get to her bus stop is to walk downhill on the street (there are NO sidewalks) to Central/65. For several days now this street basically been an inclined skating rink.

Today I got up 1.5hrs early and drove her to her work downtown so she wouldn’t end up in the hospital…

Meanwhile whose head(s) need(s) to roll due to this accessibility trash fire? No sidewalk, no road treatment, no way to walk to the bus without major risk of injury. Total BS
