Fed up with crummy streets, residents patch city's potholes

HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (AP) -

Some Detroit-area residents fed up with the crummy condition of streets are taking matters into their own hands.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report that volunteers with the recently started Hamtramck Guerrilla Road Repair effort started filling in potholes Saturday on one roadway and they plan to make repairs to other side streets in the coming weekends.

Maritza Garibay, a member of the group, says: "We're all just concerned citizens who care about the city and want to help." Fellow group member Jonathan Weier says they made sure the efforts wouldn't conflict with the city's roadwork plans and got "their goodwill blessing."

Hamtramck Mayor Karen Majewski says the Detroit enclave has been focusing this year on putting road money toward repairs to streets used as fire routes.
