City of Taylor rolls out aggresive plan to fix potholes, will fill them within 48 hours of report

TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - The city of Taylor is rolling out an aggressive plan to fix potholes Monday.  The plan is a three step plan designed to deal with potholes across the city after what was one of the hardest-hitting Michigan winters.

The three steps are broken down like this:

Step 1: Tell the city about them.

Step 2: The city will map them out for everyone to see.

Step 3: The city will fill  them within 48 hours.

That is the goal of Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars, and the new aggressive program designed by the Department of Public Works.

"The last time I looked, we had over 400 potholes reported in our community," Sollars said in a statement. "Now that we're heading toward spring, our goal is to fill all of these holes, at least the most dangerous ones.

Also, Taylor City Hall Customer Service Manager Alan Horn has added locations to the new Taylor Pothole Location Viewer, that lets residents see a citywide view of the current pothole problems, but also see the status of the complaint.

The potholes will be indicated on a map in red for an open pothole, orange for a pothole scheduled to get fixed, or green if the pothole is finally fixed.
