INDIANAPOLIS - Crews with the Department of Public Works will soon have additional resources to repair potholes.
The Indianapolis City-County Council voted Monday night to allocate $8 million for emergency road repairs.
Crews have already filled close to 17,000 potholes since December, but according to the city’s website, 3,500 more potholes still need to be repaired.
Councillors are scheduled to discuss another $16 million allocation in the coming months.
The council also approved a $7 million transfer to cover unanticipated snow removal costs.
A change to the code for smoke detectors that will require non-removable, non-replaceable batteries that can last at least 10 years was also approved Monday evening.
