Potholes have been a major source of frustration lately
in Toledo, including for members of city council.
"I'm experiencing what my fellow citizens are
experiencing, and I'm not a good dodger, so I've gone through a few potholes," said
Councilwoman Sandy Spang.
This year the city will spend $6 million for repaving
projects on major streets where state and federal funding has also been
secured. Spang hopes the city can free up some additional money within this
"We need to review the budget. I think we need to make
that a high priority. It's an economic development issue. It's a safety issue.
It reaches out into so many areas."
Mayor D. Michael Collins says the one option the city
can't afford to consider is borrowing more money for street repaving.
"We have a debt service that is realistically choking us
right now," he said. "That's because we kicked the can by borrowing money and
now we're paying for that money to be borrowed."
The mayor says the city will be asking for additional
state and federal assistance.
"I'm hoping we can see the State of Ohio and the federal
government provide some relief," he said.
