GREENFIELD — If Jim Hahn has learned just one thing in the past three months, it’s this: His boss is Mother Nature.
The Greenfield street commissioner has barely caught up on sleep from trying to keep up with central Indiana’s snowiest winter on record. Now, he’s already switching gears to tackle another problem – potholes.
The excessive moisture from the melting snow is causing potholes to form everywhere, big and small. It looks as if, Hahn says, “somebody’s gone around town with grenades and dropped them off.”
And it’s not like he can just ignore the problem. Potholes have to be repaired for the safety of motorists and longevity of the roads.
