Public Works and Utilities Department officials report that 5,387 potholes have been repaired this week as of Thursday. The Department continues to transfer staff from other maintenance duties to pothole repair, bringing the number of workers assigned to potholes to 52.
"Our crews are doing a great job in tackling the pothole problems," said Thomas Shafer, Interim Public Works and Utilities Director. "We continue to reassign and deploy extra staff as needed and will continue to do so until we're able to get further ahead of the need. I want to thank motorists and the public in general for their patience and for allowing crews the room they need to successfully do the job."
