Battling potholes

With rain, comes potholes. And we’ve had plenty of both.

Report holes in the road to your area’s public works department by calling:

County, 454-2160

Santa Cruz, 420-5160

Scotts Valley, 438-5854

Capitola, 475-7300

Watsonville, 768-3133


While we’re on the subject, what do you think about businesses sponsoring pothole patchwork? I saw on the news were Kentucky Fried Chicken is paying for about 50 pothole repairs in Petaluma. As part of the civic promotion, the eatery will have its logo chalked on top of the resurfaced hole. The chalk isn’t permanent and would wash away with the next rain or street sweeping. What do you think about that concept in Santa Cruz County?
