“legislation that pressures our own DOT to fill potholes caused by its own mismanagement”

from Assemblyman Kevin J. Rooney

“I hope that you and your family are enjoying the summer as we enter August. Soon, the back to school sales will begin and if you drive to work, the morning commute will get a bit longer again. Back to school also means there will be more cars on the road. This month, I would like to address something I have briefly mentioned to you previously: our crumbling infrastructure.

Bergen County freeholders agree to enlist ‘Pothole Killer’

THE RECORD

In the seemingly endless war against potholes, Bergen County officials are bringing back a big weapon: “the Pothole Killer.”

The freeholders voted unanimously to spend up to $60,000 to rent the pothole patching system from Patch Management Inc., a company based in Fairless, Pa.

The vote came after County Executive James Tedesco made a last-minute personal request for the device, which he described as far more effective than the so-called “hot patch” method the county has been using this winter.

The truck costs $9,000 a month to rent. Tedesco said the county was also exploring whether to buy the unit at a cost of about $700,000 and make it available to the 70 towns in the county as a shared service.

Tedesco said the potholes filled by the truck, which the county has used in the past, are guaranteed to stay filled for up to a year if the equipment is used properly.

He said the system had a long snout-like attachment with a compressor that blows out any water in the pothole and dries it.

Readers say Village Manager  Roberta Sonenfeld really overstepped her bounds . 

The capital budget had called for $1.5 million for paving, but Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld pulled it from the annual spending plan, opting instead to introduce it for separate consideration by the council.

Readers says she is not an elected official.Who does Sonenfeld think she is? She can’t unilaterally decide what items have to be individually voted on.
