ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- The numbers are in, and you were right, this was a record-shattering year for potholes.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis says the public works department has been going through tons of the hot pothole mix.

This year from April to now we've used over 1,600 tons of that mix for potholes.  If you go back 10 years and you add up every single year over the last decade we haven't used that much.

Kleis says the reason why the city has gone through more hot pothole mix this year than the last 10 years combined is all weather related.
