In City of Tacoma Washington, we City Citizens have a responsibility to keep-an-eye on our streets because City will not detect and fix street problems for us—we report problem to City first! Quite simple—we see a street problem or pothole it’s up to use to report it; as a result, get it added to the City schedule list of streets that require repair.
The City street repairs process is this:
“[B]ased upon our reporting requirements [to the City] and because we no longer proactively patch potholes, our field crews only patch the potholes found within the block of the original complaint [reported]. . . .” as described within a e-mail from Rae Bailey, PW Division Manager, Street Operations, City of Tacoma, to John E Sherman, Resident City of Tacoma. (Tacoma Citizens Support Center W034945-011515) (February 2, 2015, 2:18 PM PST) (copy on file with John E Sherman).
Therefore, let’s all help the City of Tacoma out with identification and location of all streets and roadways streets that require repairs or fixing.
