Expect those holes to last a little longer: Pothole patching delayed by cold, wet weather
The cold, wet weather that continues to linger this spring means it’ll take longer for potholes to be repaired.
Perham’s Public Works Director, Merle Meece, said the holes need to be dry and free of ice before they can be effectively patched.
“The weather’s not cooperating,” he said last Friday. “You have to make sure there’s no ice, and right now that’s a problem. There’s always ice in the holes in the morning, and then they’re wet (for the rest of the day).”
