Holey graffiti, Batman!

Staff writer

Someone — or more than one someone — is bringing attention to potholes on county roads by spray-painting circles around them.

In some cases, they’re also leaving pointed messages.

“Brice sucks,” reads a message at a pothole between 230th and 240th Rds. on Remington Rd., referencing county engineer Brice Goebel.

“Join us and help fix them,” a secondary message says.

Goebel said “not that I know of” when asked whether he had responded to the first message.

Goebel said he had no clue who had written the messages or circled potholes.

The strategy is not new.

“We’ve seen anything and everything,” he said. “If they want to do that, I don’t care.”

County workers go out and fill potholes as needed, he said. There’s no size requirement to fill a pothole, he said.
