Potholes & Street Repair
The Street Maintenance Division attempts to repair potholes on streets as soon as they become a problem. Alleys are lower priority and are repaired as workload permits. Please use the Report a Concern feature on the website to request pothole and street repairs, as well as other service requests. You may also call the Service Center at (937) 525-5800.
