CINCINNATI - The city is declaring war on potholes, dubbing mid-March through mid-April as "Pothole Month."

Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld is working closely with the city's Public Services Department to began the pothole repair.

The city says the recent changes in weather is what causes most potholes to form.

"People's cars are taking a beating," Sittenfeld said. "As part of this pothole blitz, our Public Services Department is increasing resources and customer service delivery to attack the pothole issue in our city. These are the kind of basic services people rightly expect from their local government."

Residents are encouraged to report any craters they come across to the city by sending a photo as well as the location directly to Sittenfeld at pg.sittenfeld@cincinnati-oh.gov .

Pothole reports can also be made at www.591600.com .

The pothole blitz kicks off Tuesday morning in the 1800 block of Andina Avenue in Bond Hill.
