Sidewalk Cover

About three weeks ago I emailed Verizon to inform them an old Bell Atlantic sidewalk cover in front of my house is falling apart and has become a tripping hazard.  I asked in the email if someone would respond to acknowledge receipt.  I wasn't suprised that no one responded or fix the problem.  I was also told by a Fios contractor that he had informed Verizon of the issue.  I want Verizon to address the issue quickly before someone gets hurt.  I don't think I should have to contact the FCC or the Pennsylvania Utility Commission in order for Verizon to take action.  Please advise the best route to take.

Thank you,

I think the public utilities commission can call Verizon and get it fixed. They do regulate them.

or I would look under the contact us section on the and get the number for Verizon Legal department and alert them as to what may occur if they don’t fix it “now that you have notified them”
