Coun. Wally Collins says the cure for spring potholes in St. John’s is just a phone call away.

Collins, the head of the city's public works committee, says complaints are common at this time of year, but people can do their part by notifying city workers about rough roads.

"I urge people to report all the potholes they see, so the roads don't get so bad," Collins said.

"If you've got a pothole on your street just report it, [call] 311, and within a week it's fixed."

At a council meeting Monday evening, St. John's city council added another $2 million to its street rehabilitation program.

That brings the total budget for this year to $8 million.
