BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Tom Kramer is the superintendent for the Bay County Road Commission. He said the battle against potholes is going well.

"We're maintaining our own. We have crews going out every day, running their areas, checking them out, making sure things are buttoned up," Kramer said.

He said the weather we've had recently is helping to keep those craters in check.

"The moisture we got was good. It helped the frost get out of the ground and you know right now so far so good," Kramer said.

Residents said their glad to see crews out here making the roads smoother.

Mike Kienbaum lives in Monitor Township, where a road crew was out working today filling in the gaps winter left behind.

"I think it's good they're patching them," Kienbaum said.

While Kienbaum appreciates their effort, he said he's looking forward to having his street repaved. That is scheduled for later this year.

"That chip and seal gets up on your vehicle and stuff like that but I mean it's got to be done so I guess you just kind of got to deal with it," Kienbaum said.

Ramer is urging Bay County residents to contact the road commission to report potholes. But he said, at least for now, complaints are few and far between just like the potholes.

He said that's just fine for him and his department.

"No more. No more potholes. Bring on summer," Kramer said.
