It wouldn’t be Michigan if not for the potholes.

Recently, potholes have been popping up all around Clinton County and are causing drivers a lot of grief. The Clinton County Road Commission has been working hard to find a quick fix to the problem and it’s called cold patching.

According to, cold patching is an environmentally friendly product specially formulated with a high percentage of graded recycled asphalt pavement and special binding agent used to fill holes over 25.4 millimeters wide.

A quick fix isn’t good enough for Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, who has worked hard at passing Proposal One. Proposal One will improve Michigan’s roads but Michiganders will end up paying more at the pump as well as see an increase in the sales tax.

According to, if proposal one were passed Michigan drivers would see a rise in the sales tax from six to seven percent.
