Guam - You likely dodge them on the streets in fear they'll ruin your car but now they're on the Department of Public Works' to-do list.
At a recent Mayors Council of Guam meeting DPW deputy director Jessie Palican requested mayors act as the eyes and the ears for the agency to assist with prioritizing pothole repairs.
Palican provided mayors with a questionnaire to report their village's potholes.
"Critical is where we gotta start working on right away. Critical is where you lose control of your vehicle because you're not aware of how deep and the pothole can be wavy or curvy and the other is when it does damage to your cars. Those are issues we're going to address first. That's our priority," he said.
Mayors are asked to include the cause of the pothole, whether it is contractual, Guam Waterworks Authority, or DPW as well as include a picture.
