City Street Crews Focus on Potholes

The Public Works and Utilities Department today tripled the usual number of crews working on pothole repair. The Department transferred staff from other maintenance duties to pothole repair, bringing the number of workers assigned to potholes to about 35.

Residents can report potholes and other non-emergency street problems can be reported in four ways:

Those reporting emergency situations should always use 911.
