Fixing potholes

Monday, March 31, 2008

Harry Head, left, and Mike Bemis fill a pothole Monday morning on Harrison St., near Tennessee St., for the City of Brazil Street Department. The road crew scanned the north side of town for holes to fill. Melinda Quasius Photo.

filling potholes are just a very temporary way of fixing the real problem. another rain or two after the holes reappear sometimes even worse than before. these roads need to be totally repaired and paved. maybe we should all take our car repair bills for tire replacement, shocks, alignments, etc.. to city hall for them to pay. i am sure fixing the roads correctly would be a hell of alot cheaper than replacing everyones damaged car parts.

I just recently had over $700 expense for the potholes on Water Works Road. When I took my car in to repair the damages I was informed that there were several others who also had horrible damage on the road the same weekend. If they aren't going to truly fix the problem then at least invest in some signs or cones warning of the dangers.
