What do we do to get our streets fixed?

It's been many months since winter and streets still have 6" deep potholes. It's dangerous for bikers and damages cars. I've called 311 for the deep holes I've found within a few blocks of my house with no results. Guess they only care about new speed cameras, red light and street cleaning tickets.

  • J. Theo Bucktown resident

    I suggest getting some neighbors together, taking up a collection, buy some fill @ Home Depot and fill the holes yourselves. Calling in the local news media to get some footage is a good idea too. Sometimes, we need to make some public noise to garner exposure to these simple problems that our taxes are supposed to cover.You could make a block party out of it, and meet your neighbors too!

  • Love that idea, J. Theo!
