Mayor Chris Beutler said all City street maintenance staff not working on snow removal will now be working to fill potholes. Arterial streets will be the first priority. The Mayor encourages residents to report potholes created by the recent weather. Potholes are created when water seeps into cracks in the pavement, freezes and expands.
Citizens can report potholes and other non-emergency street problems in three ways:
City crews today are checking on problem areas, responding to complaints and working on complete snow removal operations on arterials. Motorists are asked to be aware that re-freezing at night can create icy street conditions. Drivers also are encouraged to be especially careful as they drive around crews performing street repairs.
