Filling in a pothole

DuBois City workers fill in a pothole on West Scribner Avenue in front of the city building Tuesday. Bob Lepeonka is in the truck and Mike McGranor is with the shovel.

DuBOIS — This time of year, old problems reappear: the dreaded potholes.

“They exist, not only in our community but in every community,” said DuBois City Manager John “Herm” Suplizio. “When nice weather starts coming around, these potholes start surfacing and start rearing their ugly heads.”

Suplizio said the city is aware there are numerous potholes throughout the city.

“If you notice some, please don’t hesitate to call the city building and let us know where they’re at,” Suplizio said.

And residents are asked to be patient.

“City crews will be out to take care of those dreaded potholes,” he said. “But everyone has to understand that through the City of DuBois, we do have some state roads which means PennDOT is responsible for fixing the potholes on their roads.”
