Pothole Season in the Friendly City

Now that winter has passed, it's time to deal with the potholes left behind. Citizens are encouraged to report particularly bad potholes in their area.

WOODSTOCK - Now that we've said goodbye to winter, it's time to tackle potholes.

City Engineer for Woodstock Harold deHaan says everything has been going pretty much as expected.

"So far this year we're seeing about average of what we'd normally see. And it's not normally always the mildness of the winter that effects the pavement it's the cycles - the freeze-thaw cycles - that do the most damage to the pavement."

He encourages residents who notice particularly bad potholes to give them a call or send them an email so they can make sure the issue is addressed as soon as they are able.

"We do our own surveys, but we do like people to report potholes to us. They can do that either on the phone by calling 519-539-2382 extension 3104 or you can go to our website and email the Works Department also."

Larger potholes are prioritized, but deHaan says they are doing their best to make sure everything is seen to in a timely manner.

"There are certain standards we are required to meet in terms of the size of the pothole must be addressed within a certain time frame, so that's what we do. At a minimum right now we have a pothole crew out once a week."
