# Is a connected $\sigma$-locally compact metric space necessarily “connectedly $\sigma$-locally compact”?

Let $X$ be a metric space that is connected and $\sigma$-locally compact (by which I mean that there is a countable family of compact subsets of $X$ whose interiors cover $X$).

Does every point in $X$ necessarily admit a neighbourhood that is both compact and connected?

$$X \ := \ \{(0,y) : y \in [-1,1) \} \, \cup \, \{ (x,\sin(\tfrac{1}{x})) : x \in (0,1] \}.$$
It is clear that for every $r \in [-1,1)$, if $A$ is a connected neighbourhood of $(0,r)$ then $A$ contains $\{ (x,\sin(\tfrac{1}{x})) : x \in (0,\varepsilon] \}$ for some $\varepsilon>0$; but then if $A$ is also closed, then $A$ must also contain $\{(0,y) : y \in [-1,1) \}$. So $A$ cannot be compact.
