CARROLLTON (CBS 11 NEWS) - A Carrollton neighborhood is turning to a 10-year-old boy for help getting the city to save their homes.

10-year-old Nick Harmla spoke during the city council meeting on Tuesday night.

He read a handwritten note asking councilmembers to replace a retaining wall that could stop soil erosion that has washed away most of his family’s backyard.

Harmla says he no longer has a backyard to play in and pleaded with city officials who have told homeowners its a private property issue.

“I felt like something was wrong so I stepped forward,” says Harmla.

Councilmembers did not respond after the boy addressed them because the neighborhood has filed a lawsuit against the city.

Still some councilmembers applauded his actions.

“The impact is I think we’re all impressed that a young man spoke with such passion and poise to the city council,” says councilmember Jeff Andonian.
