Contractor comes to aid of disabled woman hit with city citation

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A woman hit with a citation for having a concrete pad installed near her front door for easier access to her home could get some help from a local contractor to solve the dilemma.

Carol Waddell, 70, was cited by the city following the installation of a concrete pad on her property. Waddell has bad knees and a heart condition. Parking her car closer to her door helps facilitate her walk.

The citation said the cement covers the right of way between the sidewalk and the curb and needs to be removed but first, Waddell needs to apply for and pay for a permit to destroy what wasn't supposed to be there in the first place.

Waddell hired a contractor who she said told her he'd gotten the necessary permit from the city. The installation cost her $15,000.

Now, a local contractor is coming to her aid. Matt Agundez told Team 10 he's willing to do the work for free if the City of San Diego will waive the fines and fees. 

Agundez is now working with Code Enforcement to remove the concrete in Waddell’s right-of-way.
