ST. LOUIS, M0 (KTVI) - Homeowners in a north St Louis neighborhood call the You Paid For It team to help deal with a problem that's a threat to their peace and safety.

The street is tearing up and the patch job done by the Street Department is far from a solution.

Big trucks and buses rumble over the patch job shaking their houses and they say cause cracks.

A major problem occurs when drivers try to avoid the patch and slam into cars.

We met with a big group of the neighbors who talked to us about the problem and how they feel they're coming up short as taxpayers.

The You Paid For It Team heads to the Streets Commissioner and the Alderwoman of the Ward for answers and action.

The Streets Commissioner says he doesn't have the money for a permenant solution which would cost aboutg $200,000.

The Alderwoman first told us she didn't have it either but changed her tune when we showed up for the interview and promised to find the funds for the fix.
