Three months of calls to officials in Kansas City about a big pothole with no action was long enough for Frank Sereno.
He decided to hold a birthday party for the pothole in the city's Waldo neighborhood, telling a local tv station that at least his neighbors were amused. Kansas City public works spokeswoman Maggie Green responded by announcing that they know there are still potholes needing to be filled since they popped up this winter, but says they're getting to them as fast as the weather allows.
Days after Sereno threw the party, the pothole got fixed! Whatever works, right? Maybe this is the way to get things done everywhere!
