Mayor announces start of pothole emergency plan
Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced on May 9 the implementation of a pothole emergency plan that will run six weeks and fill 50,000 potholes.
“We are dividing the city into four zones and will attack this problem systematically and efficiently for the next six weeks, at the end of which we will have 50,000 fewer potholes than we do today,” the mayor said. “A large contingent of city employees will be methodically moving through streets to fill all potholes in an efficient manner, rather than crisscrossing the city based on complaints. This will be done by zone, which is the most efficient way to tackle this crisis.”
The number of daily pothole crews will be more than tripled from four to 13. Public Service employees will be pulled away from all other duties—except demolition, alley maintenance, and the mill and fill road resurfacing program—to fill potholes during the next six weeks.
