"Mr. Fix-It" services will be provided to eligible and/or disabled homeowners, apartment and mobile home dwellers. Services and repairs normally, legally and contractually by landlords will not be provided by "Mr. Fix-It".

The primary goal and priority of the "Mr. Fix-It" program is to perform repairs affecting the SAFETY, HEALTH and/or SECURITY of the resident.

Accordingly, the scope of service "Mr. Fix-It" will perform include:
  • Repair of broken windows or doors
  • Simple plumbing repairs (toilets, dripping faucets, etc.)

Requests for work will be completed according to the talents of "Mr. Fix-It", geographic area and urgency, and as closely as possible to the order in which they are received. Extreme emergency cases involving a safety or health hazard are exceptions, whereas residents should call 9-1-1; they will not be accepted by Mr. Fix-It. 

Clients MUST be home at the time "Mr. Fix-It" schedules. No services will be provided unless the client is present.

You will be required to provide PROOF OF INCOME for ALL PERSONS LIVING IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD to the Mayor's "Mr. Fix-It" Program.

All employees and volunteers of the "Mr. Fix-It" Program are considered handy persons and not "experts" in any area. They will use their judgment on the job and are authorized to decline a repair or service.

The "Mr. Fix-It" Program will not dispose of any refuse, used appliances, containers, or other materials, nor arrange for pick-up by the Division of Sanitation, private scavenger or other disposal service. Disposal and/or recycling remains the responsibility of the homeowner and landlord.

"Mr. Fix-It" will perform no service that requires any permit, variance, or inspection by any governmental agency or official.

The Community Development Block Grant of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
