Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

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."
