How to Report Potholes - 10 Aug 2013
Most bicycle riders have to ride at least a portion of their route on city streets. Potholes that are an inconvenience for an automobile can be bone-jarring or accident causing for a bicyclist. The City of Sioux City makes it very easy to report a pothole. Go to the City's website www.sioux-city.org and click on the Contact Us link. A drop down menu will appear and one of the options is 'Report a Pothole' - You can list your name and phone number and the address/description of where the pothole is. Our experience is that the City does a fairly good job of following up on these requests, and we have had them call the number we gave with the report to follow up.
