BANGOR – Last winter, Bangor’s public works department had to deal with a lot of potholes throughout the city.
According to public works director Eric Willett, this year potholes have been less of a problem.
He attributes it to a re-paved Union Street and having multiple crews out during the day.
“We’ve got two crews out every single day, and we probably put out four to ten tons of patch every day,” said Willett. “So we’re trying to keep up with it, and we seem to be doing a good job.”
Willett says Ohio and State Streets are two of the trouble areas in Bangor, but crews are doing a good job of keeping them patched.
He also wants to remind the public of the city’s sidewalk ordinance.
Anyone who blocks the sidewalk with their driveway snow will be subject to a warning and then a fine of $100. That will be enforced during this weekend’s storm.
