WATERLOO, Iowa – This was the third weekend volunteers filled potholes in Waterloo.
They’ve been using donated materials to help the city fill the holes all over town. The group has been doing this for several years, but yesterday they had a newcomer join them.
Mayor Quentin Hart says, “It’s about giving back to our community. A lot of people can talk and complain, but there are folks out there making a difference, like the folks that are out here today.”
Mayor Hart says this was one of the hardest winters for the city, and he’s pretty good with a shovel.
Scott Jordan posted to Facebook, saying volunteers are now entering their third week of filling potholes in Waterloo.
He says so far, they’ve gone through 30-plus tons of asphalt to fill potholes throughout the city. He adds that volunteers are hitting the streets again TODAY. They are looking for some additional volunteers.
If you are free and wold like to volunteer today, they’re meeting at 8:45 a.m. at 210 West 18th Street in Waterloo. This is across from the Wishbone Restaurant.
You will get a T-Shirt, a shovel, and gift cards. They say all you need is a pair of gloves.
