Q. There are some loose boards on the Riverwalk. Are there any plans to repair or replace these potential hazards?
Richard King, director of public services for the City of Wilmington, said the city will happily repair or replace loose boards – if they know where they are.
“Typically, somebody will call us and give us a location, then we’ll send a crew out,” King said.
Some situations call for minor repairs, like fixing a loose nail, King said. Others, like a split or damaged board, require a full replacement. The city’s parks or building crews are called on to do the job, King said.
If you step on a loose board on the riverwalk, call the city’s parks office at 341-7852 and let them know, King said.
“We want to take care of it so nobody will get hurt,” he said.
