(La Porte, IN) - Pot holes could be a thing of the past in La Porte. The city has already begun patching.
It’s possible right now because the city acquired of a new machine that heats up the material allowing the material to adhere to the surface. Previously, the material was cold and didn’t last very long, said La Porte Street Department Superintendent Mike Frase who was out with the hot patch machine yesterday on Indiana Avenue. He states the hot material makes it possible to fill potholes even during the winter.
Mayor Tom Dermody is urging residents to report potholes. He said plugging potholes is one of the ingredients for continuing to grow the community. “We will be pothole free La Porte,” Dermody said.
