BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport shop owner says he's running into a lot of red tape trying to fix the sidewalk in front of his stores.

The owner of the stores on State Street says he just repaved the section of the sidewalk he owns.

Bernard Postyn says the city's portion of the sidewalk hasn't been repaved in more than 20 years and the city has told him not to touch its portion of the sidewalk.

Postyn says he offered to pay the roughly $2,000 to repave the city's section of the sidewalk, but the city refused.
