The City of Mercedes shared a video on Facebook of a man filling the potholes with asphalt dust. The post stated that reported potholes were being fixed.

“It’s just a very poor job of just filling it up with whatever and using rakes to spread it around. You can tell they’re not fixing it right,” said Ybarra.
