Terry and Jerry Robison both work for the City Wastewater and Sewer Department. However, both have extensive knowledge in setting concrete.
Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham is taking advantage of that knowledge.
When time permits, the brothers will head to designated areas to repair sidewalks.
The more than 100-feet of sidewalk near House of Spirits, 319 E. Jackson St., recently received a makeover.
"We do this from time to time," Terry told The Brazil Times Friday morning as he paved an area. "We work it in with our other (duties)."
Terry said they had started a 30-foot stretch of sidewalk Wednesday and expected to be completed by Friday afternoon.
In addition, they had completed a 40-foot stretch of the area earlier in the week.
He added they planned to complete a 35-foot stretch of sidewalk between the two other areas next week.
"We hope to start the final (stretch) Monday, weather permitting," Terry said.
Wyndham said the sidewalks next to House of Spirits were in desperate need of repair.
"That's been a problem area," Wyndham said. "It was busted up bad. It's been bad for a long time."
Wyndham said residents who live in Cooper Towers, Meridian Towers and Jackson Gardens recently approached him with concerns regarding the stretch of sidewalk.
"That sidewalk is used extensively by people coming down from the towers (to the Kroger shopping plaza)," Wyndham said. "That's kind of their highway."
Wyndham added there is a list of sidewalks in his office that need repairing.
"There's no end to the list," he said, adding repairs are done on a case-by-case basis based on situations.
Wyndham also said he wanted to reignite an old process the city used to do with residents and businesses.
He said years ago, the city -- under verbal agreement with businesses and residents -- offered to repave sidewalk areas if those who wanted the repairs completed purchased the materials.
"If they buy the materials, the city will (complete the project)," he said. "We have the skilled workers to do it. Those guys do a good job. They should be commended.
"This is what we should be doing."
