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 13th 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.
