ROSELLE, NJ - During Wednesday nights Council meeting Council members approved an agreement, with Patch Management, Inc. -- also known as the "Pothole Killers" -- to start repairing potholes over a three-week period this spring. Scheduling to follow, but the plan is to have the work done by early June.
Patch Management will dispatch four of its pothole-filling trucks to Roselle to accomplish this task. The trucks and their proprietary technology have been used with great success throughout the Northeast in recent years. The trucks can fill an average pothole in 30 seconds. The filled hole is immediately ready for traffic, and its shelf life is significantly longer than those filled manually.
It was also noted that this will also free up DPW workers for other tasks, and potentially save overtime costs in this department.
In other business, Council members gave out Proclamations to the Roselle Catholic Boys Basketball Team as well as the Roselle Public Library for “National Library Week.”
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the United States each April, typically the second full week.
Mayor Dansereau, Council members, and Residents also took a moment to remember the fallen for “National Police Officers Memorial Week.”
