Letter: City isn’t only place with awful potholes

City isn’t only place with awful potholes

An Aug. 5 letter to the editor complained about poor street conditions in Buffalo and mentioned that this was not so in the suburbs. I’m guessing the writer has not been to Hamburg.

I figured those potholes would be filled by now, and the low-lying sewer manholes raised. Those manholes really can give the car a jar.

They also work great to let storm water into our sewage collection system during periods of heavy rainfall, adding gallons to the flow and sending untreated sewage past the Southtowns Sewage Treatment Plant to Lake Erie beside Woodlawn Beach Park.
