Does the Town have a “Pothole Fixer”?
Yes, the Town does have an infrared heater “pothole fixer” but it cannot be used in cold, inclement weather. The "pothole fixer" is an infrared machine that heats up existing asphalt to loosen it up and reuse in place to patch. That machine is not meant to be used in wintry weather.

A pothole fixer is a specialized massive infrared panel that is lowered onto the street; it heats the asphalt around the pothole prior to filling it, ensuring that the new material bonds strongly to the surrounding road, preventing repeated repairs.
