Several Huntington residents address major pothole problem at City Council meeting

HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) - Several Huntington residents showed up to the town's City Council Meeting Tuesday evening to address their concerns over the severe pothole problem.

Although the issue was not on the agenda, many residents felt the problem was too important not to bring up. 

City officials listened as residents spoke about how several city roads are not passable due to the large number and severity of the potholes. One of the biggest issues brought up was how school buses are not able to safely transport children to and from school because of the problem.

One resident went as far as suggesting a possible solution  that would involve grants.

The city council and city engineers reassured the concerned citizens that they were aware of the severity of the problem and are currently working on a plan to get funding and eventually rebuild the roads.

City council invited any interested residents to a workshop planned for April 14th were they will discuss the pothole issue and possible solutions moving forward.
