How can I get the government to fix potholes?
Whatever entity oversees the road — be it the state, county, city, township or village — is responsible for its maintenance.
Your best bet to get potholes patched up is to call whichever agency supervises the road. In your case, contact the Perkins Township highway department to inform them of the deficient roadway.
As reported in a recent Register story: "Street workers must quickly fix potholes when notified by community members of their whereabouts. If workers neglect these requests, then community members sustaining damage or injury from a previously reported pot hole can receive a reimbursement — or possibly sue the (government) — for their troubles."
If workers know about potholes, they have an obligation to fix them in a timely matter.
