A Matter Of Opinion

Letter: Potholes

I sincerely hope that city administration and staff have learned their lesson concerning advance planning and accurate weather predictions for future winters and that pothole repairs are completed properly and ice is removed as quickly as possible. No excuses for poor planning or repairs.

We’re getting a steady stream of complaints about potholes, and I have to admit I’m pretty shocked at how much worse off our streets appear after this particular thaw. Unfortunately, the street department can’t make proper repairs until April, when the asphalt plants open again. Meanwhile I imagine they’ll be doing some “cold” patching like this photo shows. There are quite a few incentives these days for driving as little as possible.
