For the second consecutive year, Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri is directing DPW personnel to focus on filling potholes and improving street conditions in the city.

The pothole campaign will begin on Monday, March 16th and run until April 15th.

Palmieri says last year’s extreme winter weather caused severe damage to roads and infrastructure.  He say given the fact this winter was worse than last year and in anticipation of similar damage to roads and infrastructure, the City is being proactive in fixing and improving road conditions.

The DPW will utilize its Hot Box, which holds 6 tons of hot asphalt, making pothole repairs more efficient and longer lasting

Residents can report potholes by calling the Mayor's Office at 315-792-0100 x3.
