Potholes and Broken Pavement

The Street Department makes every effort to keep up with pothole development. However, many ongoing daily events contribute to the disintegration of city streets, particularly in the winter. Potholes can be caused by freeze-thaw cycles, snow plow blades, vibrations from traffic and heavy equipment and more. Please take extreme care during winter months, as potholes can occur in a matter of hours. If you see a pothole, call us at 330-854-2225 and leave a message.

During the winter, weather permitting, potholes are filled with a cold-patch material as soon as they are reported to the Street Department. In warmer weather, an asphalt hot-patch mixture is used to repair them.
