Dear Mayor Coles,

Thank you for all that you do for our town! I think it’s safe to say that Lakewood is in a constant war with potholes on our streets. Is there a way to make it really easy (like a number to text/ form on a website) to report a pothole? Most people to not have time to find out the number to call and actually speak to a live person (plus that’s a waste of resources). Perhaps if we can publicize a direct Webpage link or a number to text, we will finally gain the upper hand and be more efficient with pothole repair.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Response from Mayor Coles:

Thanks for ruining my surprise! We are just a couple of weeks away from announcing an automated system to deal with variety of issues related to Public Works. Residents will be able to use a smart phone, tablet or home computer to put in requests directly to Public Works. We hope to start out with the pot hole app shortly.
