Letter to the Editor: Make pot holes a priority


Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Pot holes are showing up throughout our city.

The many storms we have had have left us with softer ground, causing problems on many of our streets. I called three weeks ago about a huge pot hole in Cedarbrook Drive and was told that this could not be repaired until the asphalt plant was started up. The contractors who are paving Wesleyan Boulevard have plenty of asphalt.

In the meantime, the hole was filled in twice with a substance that only washes out. A system better than this is needed. Please do something soon. By paying our taxes, we pay the city of Rocky Mount to ensure we have safe roads.
