A reminder for pothole haters, it's time to get ready to get yours filled: Operation Pothole is returning next month to the oh-so-mean streets of Los Angeles. Operation Pothole was first launched in January by City Council President Eric Garcetti, who set the lofty goal of getting 10-15,000 potholes filled over the course of a couple of days. This time, as Streetsblog notes, the goal is double: 20,000 potholes to be filled by twice as many crews on June 4th and 5th.Let the City know about the pesky and damage-causing potholes on your commute or in your neighborhood. Residents can file a report online or via the 3-1-1 phone system. But if you don't tell them about the hole, well--they won't know to fill it. As Garcetti said back in December: “Please don’t assume that the city will magically know about the pothole near your house or on your way to work."
