The city of Mankato will be out filling potholes today but they need YOUR help! Not actually filling the potholes, but reporting them. They can’t fill ’em if they don’t know about ’em, so they are encouraging area drivers to notify them of particularly bad ones. To report one, Director of Public Works Jeff Johnson says you can use the 311 app or call their 311 number to report it so they can go out and get it fixed right away. The constant cycle of freezing and thawing ground this time of year make it a challenge for the city to keep up with the potholes.
