MASON CITY, Iowa- The Mason City Streets Department will be looking to fix potholes starting this week, and those in the public are ready for it.
Jim Phelps, of Mason City, said he has been seeing potholes everywhere he drives, with some being the size of his hands.
The street department said anytime you get conditions where water is continually freezing and thawing, you have a chance for potholes forming.
Phelps said it isn’t just him that has noticed the dings in the road. He said everyone he has spoken with is talking about the issue.
“If you run over it with your tire it is going to screw alignment up, then you have to pay to get it fixed,” Phelps said. “It’s just a pain in the butt, it's just a pain.”
