Mayor declares open season on Ballard potholes

Along 24th Ave. in Ballard this morning, Mayor Greg Nickels declared an “open season” on Seattle potholes, calling Ballard one of the city’s top offenders (as well as 15th Ave. through Interbay). The goal is for Seattle’s “Pothole Rangers” to fill a record number of potholes over the next week — 1,300, to be exact. Nickels urged residents to help report the worst of the worst to 684-ROAD, and he said crews will fill them within 48 hours. Well, we’ve complained about that ugly stretch of 14th Ave. before. Any others?
