City beefs up pothole repair program after critical audit

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, April 14, 2018

The city’s public works department has been on a mission to improve its pothole repair program after a stinging audit last fall.

The memo updated politicians on steps taken by the city after the audit.
