A couple weeks back we mentioned that insurance company The Hartford and the city of Dallas would go on Pothole Patrol and fix one or more of the kettles that have put a dent in the city's roadways. Now we know which ones they're offering to fill: one of the six you see at right, to be selected through an online voting process that began yesterday and ends one week from today. (Though do feel free to nominate your own ... hard.)
But in a press release sent late last night, The Hartford's PR peoples insist it will be filled in "along with others" on April 15. In early voting, Lemmon Avenue at Cedarplaza Lane leads the pack.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
