Report potholes to 286-CITY: Just one call…that’s all!

News release from Alderman Terry L. Witkowski

By - Nov 8th, 2018 08:44 am

With the weather turning colder, now is the time to call in those last remaining
potholes on city streets.

Alderman Terry L. Witkowski said the asphalt plants will soon be shutting
down for the season, and the nice, sticky “hot patch” they make that residents have seen
placed in potholes throughout the city during the warmer months will be replaced with a
“cold patch” that does not stay in place as readily.

“I strongly encourage city and 13 th District residents to call in the locations of any
potholes they see to 286-CITY (414-286-2489) so the city can get them patched right
away,” Alderman Witkowski said. “Don’t wait until Thanksgiving. We’re a cold snap
away from saying goodbye to the hot patch until spring.”

City residents calling the 286-CITY number should give the street and block on
which the pothole is located; a more specific address will ensure that the one seen is
addressed by Department of Public Works crews.
