Reg Patterson, weary of the potholes in Marsh Harbour’s roads, has decided to use whatever free time he has to fill some and hopefully bring a little relief to drivers.

“I figured I would do what I could to help the community and these holes in the road are one of my pet peeves,” he said. “I noticed a pile of quarry behind Standard Hardware. So I asked Scott Weatherford if I could use some of it and he very kindly said yes.”

“So I grabbed whatever buckets I had and a couple shovels and went and filled up my buckets and started putting the quarry in holes and tamping it down.”

Mr. Patterson said whenever it hasn’t been raining he has come out and filled some holes, adding that “if I could save one person some damage I am happy to help.”
