A number of years ago, the Beverly Improvement Association (BIA) decided to do something about potholes.

Each director of the BIA took responsibility for checking on potholes for a number of blocks in our service area and then calling them in to 311 or listing them on the Chicago website at 311.chicago.gov.

Anybody can call in or go to the website.

Our directors then follow up to make sure the potholes get filled.

We’ve found that this is good way to get potholes filled more quickly.
