Delco releasing $ to fight 'pothole vortex'

Delaware County Council will hold a potentially legendary press conference at a pothole tomorrow

Delco releasing $ to fight 'pothole vortex'

Delaware County council is planning tomorrow to announce a grant program called Operation PAT (Pothole Assistance for Taxpayers) that will help municipalities fix snow-ravaged roads by diverting cash from the Liquid Fuels Funds.

Sounds like a good idea. But the announcement itself could be legendary.

County officials plan to gather around a "pizza-sized pothole" in Ridley Park tomorrow afternoon for the press conference at Thayer and Barker streets. Reporters are being told to "go left onto Thayer and park at the pothole."

Now, I don't know whether this is a little Pizza Hut personal pan-sized pothole, or a big ol' large Imperial Pizza-sized pothole. So it remains unclear whether all five County Coucil members will be able to fit inside this pothole simultaneously.

But they better damn well try.
