Problems With Potholes, Garcetti's Neighborhood Blitz

Problems With Potholes, Garcetti's Neighborhood Blitz

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Mayor Eric Garcetti took aim at Los Angeles' perennial pothole problem Monday, announcing that an asphalt repair truck will be sent twice to every neighborhood over the next year.
"Government should actively go out to our neighborhoods and work with residents first hand to fix the most pressing problems," Garcetti said at the inaugural "neighborhood blitz" pothole repair in Sherman Oaks.

"The best way to fix problems in our neighborhoods isn't from an office in City Hall," he said. "It's on the ground in our neighborhoods."

During the next two weeks, the pothole truck will also be making its way through Sunland-Tujunga, Foothill Trails, Pacoima, Sylmar, Granada Hills North, Porter Ranch, Chatsworth and Northridge.

The Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services will coordinate with the city's 100 neighborhood councils to identify pothole problem areas in each community.

"By working with local residents as Bureau of Street Services 'Honorary Inspectors,' we can more efficiently target repair locations and quickly improve our neighborhoods," said street services director Nazario Sauceda.

Garcetti said he wants to eventually respond to pothole complaints within 48 hours.
