For several months there was a rather nasty pothole on Hawthorn Avenue, just west of N. Orange Drive in Hollywood. It was in the middle of the street so I don’t imagine that very many cars would hit it — but still. We’d complained several times and, after the recent Atmospheric River rains of early 2023, we filed another service request.
So this is what we got back:
Your Pothole – Small Asphalt Repair request was updated on 04/14/2023 3:48 PM.
Service Request # 1-3933860641
Location: 7000 W HAWTHORN AVE, 90046
CORRECTION— ACTUAL ADDRESS IS F/O 7018 W. HAWTHORN. REPAIR W/HOT A/C OR COLD PATCH
Well, guess what. It wasn’t repaired. So I emailed everyone I could at BSS on April 15:
I don’t know what’s going on over there at BSS but this pothole has NOT been filled. And the actual address is, indeed, 7000 Hawthorn, just west of N. Orange, in the middle of the street. I just drove by the pothole again, stopped my car, and double-checked the address on the apartment building on the South side of Hawthorn. IT US 7000 Hawthorn. You filled a pothole somewhere else!
I even sent you a picture of the pothole. It also is pretty obvious from the second photo EXACTLY where the pothole is!
This is the third time I’ve contacted you folks about this pothole.
Later that day it was filled.
