As I drive around Old Town, I continually come upon numerous potholes and ruts that have obviously developed over the winter. Luckily, to date, I have not been the victim of of a blown tire or worse. I fully realize that the city does have a pothole repair number and that they are generally attentive in responding to the residents' cries for help. The City’s normal repaving plan for its 550 miles of roads is to pave fifty (50) miles each year. This is probably insufficient for this year’s crop of potholes and ruts.
It is evident that the city is totally overburdened this year, therefore they need to step up their game, and need to dedicate more resources to the problem. This is indeed a safety issue that needs the city’s immediate attention.
