Mayor Broderick: City contracts for additional pothole repair
ANDERSON – IN – Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., announced today that the city of Anderson is contracting with two companies to add three additional crews for pothole repairs in Anderson that will begin next week. Broderick stated that the city is contracting with Cox Recycling and Milestone Contractors to provide the extra workers and equipment. The city will provide the asphalt for the repairs.
Broderick stated, “Due to the unusual harsh winter weather this year, many Indiana cities have experienced an extraordinary amount of potholes in our cities and towns. Anderson is no exception. The extreme temperature changes coupled with heavier than usual rainfall in the winter months resulted in an increased number of potholes.”
Broderick explained that the city street department workers have been working hard to fill as many potholes as possible, but the additional number of holes created by this year’s weather requires additional people and equipment to attack the problem. “Our street department employees do a great job and work hard daily to keep our streets safe, but under these unusual conditions, additional assistance is needed.” Most of our citizen’s understand the challenge, but nonetheless we want to move to get our streets back in good shape as soon as possible. Broderick stated, “We currently have three city crews working each day to make repairs to the damaged streets. This action will allow for the city to have 6 crews working to make these repairs to our roads in a much quicker fashion.”
