Potholes are a side effect of Midwestern winters. The Moline Public Works street division is having a little fun with it by holding a "Pothole of the Month" contest.
The contest runs from January through March 31.
The city of Moline will award a $50 gift certificate each month to the Moline resident who reports the largest pothole. All potholes will be repaired within 48-hours or by the next working day following the report, weather permitting.
Moline residents may enter the contest by calling the pothole hotline at 309-524-2407 and leave their name, phone number, address and the location of the pothole.
Potholes may also be reported using the online service request on the city’s website at www.moline.il.us. Official contest rules are available on the city’s website.
