POTHOLES PATCHED IN ALDERSON
A crew made up of town maintenance workers Rick Burns, Eric Duff and Brandon Boyd; Mayor Travis Copenhaver;
Police Chief Jeremy Bennett; and volunteers Keith Boyd, David and Margaret Hambrick, and Robbie Falls worked
at top speed to get the job done. It was made easier because Rick Cline provided a small roller.
Approximately 18 tons of asphalt at a cost of $1400 was spread in about 6 hours.

On Friday, June 27, a large number of potholes were filled in the
Town of Alderson. Potholes accumulate over time from wear and
tear; repairs to the water or wastewater systems; and for many other
reasons. However, fixing them requires some special timing.
The asphalt plants have to be making the right kind of asphalt; the
holes have to be dug out and readied; the steaming asphalt has to
be dumped in and spread quickly; and then it must be tamped or
Mayor Travis Copenhaver said, “We patched the largest holes first
and with the first load. Then we went on to the smaller ones.
Although we realize that all the pot holes are annoying to those who
drive over them every day, and we did not get them all, we
appreciate your patience.”
