March 2015 Column - County Executive urged to create Pothole Hotline to efficiently repair ruts

The Erie County Legislature is responding to the high volume of road complaints it is receiving by calling on County Executive to create the “pothole hotline” that he promised to implement when he ran for the position in 2011. I sent Mr. Poloncarz a letter encouraging him to create the tip line as soon as possible to provide constituents direct access to the County Executive Office, which oversees the Department of Public Works, to report road issues.
