Statement From Councilwoman Nury Martinez Declaring "Pothole Emergency" in the City of Los Angeles
Los Angeles - Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nury Martinez (Sixth District) issued the following statement after introducing a motion to Council in order to secure money to close major potholes in the City of Los Angeles:
“Due to the recent heavy rains, streets across Los Angeles have been inundated with potholes. For the security of our City, we need to fix these as soon as possible. While resources like MyLA311 have enabled our residents to report some of these potholes, the high number of potholes on our roads remains an urgent matter of pedestrian and driver safety, and cannot wait. Therefore, I have introduced a motion to the City Council to secure money to combat the “Pothole Emergency” in the City of Los Angeles.”
Councilwoman Nury Martinez is the President Pro-Tem of the Los Angeles City Council. She represents the 6th Council District, which includes all or parts of the neighborhoods of Van Nuys, Lake Balboa, Sun Valley, Panorama City, Arleta, North Hollywood, and North Hills East.
