As the weather gets warmer more potholes are springing up. The city of Lansing encourages residents to report them. One man came to us after finding out, just because the city claims a pothole is fixed doesn’t mean it actually is.
As of April, Lansing has 1,046 pothole reports. One man’s report was acknowledged by the city as a “closed” pothole, that wasn’t the case. Lansing public service director Andy Kilpatrick says random popups of potholes are one reason this happens.
“We will have taken care of potholes in the area and a week or more later there may be more that pop up,” said Kilpatrick.
