AUSTIN, Texas — Austin City auditors said the City can’t pay for all the sidewalk work it needs.
Hundreds of wrecks in Austin involved pedestrians.
The Defenders showed you how the City's planning decades ago put Austinites' safety at risk today. Some of them are where sidewalks and crosswalks don't exist.
A City audit released Wednesday shows the Public Works Department selected highest-priority locations, but they don’t have enough money to pay for the projects.
When sidewalks were built years ago, the City didn’t make sure the work was properly inspected.
