Not only is the curb cement cracked and chipping away, but the curb is so steep that lower cars are scraping the bottom to pull in/out of the driveway. I've already received one bill from a friend, who now has to replace their muffler on a fairly new Mercedes, which is a direct result of the steep and uneven curb. This is a new construction home and the builder had already submitted a request more than 9 months ago to St. Pete to have this addressed. I do understand the town/city is busy with more critical problems than my driveway, but as my home is new construction, I also happen to incur a much higher tax bill than many of the older homes in this neighborhood. Now that there has been damage to more than one car, it's only a matter of time before additional bills will be submitted to me for repairs. These bills on top of the high tax dollars I'm already paying is unnecessary and can be avoided if St Pete addresses the problem asap. I've consulted a few concrete companies, all of which have advised me that the fix requires the installation of a half pipe at the base of the driveway to allow for proper drainage. This pipe should then be cemented over with a gradual slope, allowing cars to drive in and out of the driveway with ease. If the town/city will not make the necessary repairs soon, my next step is to reach the legal department at St Pete to discuss any necessary action required to ensure this is handled appropriately and that I'm not faced with additional bills due to the lack of attention from the town.
