Pothole patching planned Residents of Glenville should soon get some relief from some of those annoying potholes around town. Glenville Mayor Delbert Davidson says the town had plans to begin patching potholes this week, weather permitting. He noted the exact date patching begins would also be determined by the availability of hot-mix from area suppliers. The town gets their hot-mix from suppliers in Creston, Clarks- burg and Gassaway. The mayor said the patching would begin on Mineral Road and Walnuts Sts., the most heavily traveled streets in town. He said responsibility for main- tenance of College St. and Main St. rests with the State Department of Highways, since they're part of Rt. 5. Davidson feels the pothole problem is not as bad this spring as in the past, because of extensive paving projects completed during the past two sum. mars, He feels all the potholes should be patched within a week.
