- STREET REPAIR BLITZ! Mayor Garcetti and the Bureau of Street Services are making a POTHOLE TRUCK available to every Neighborhood Council to make SMALL ASPHALT REPAIRS for 1 day! This includes: potholes, pop-outs, skin patching or eroded or cracked areas, and some sidewalk and curb repairs. Only 15 locations will be inspected and repairs scheduled and the Bureau’s representative determines which locations can be completed with the resources and time allocated. SO WE NEED YOU TO EMAIL US YOUR LIST OF STREET REPAIRS. Please email to email@example.com and list “BAD STREETS” on the Subject Line. Include an exact address or as close to an exact address as possible; list if it is a POTHOLE, BUMP, SIDEWALK, CURB or OTHER; and describe as best you can. CLICK HERE for more information
