TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A reward of NT$60,000 has been given to a Taipei citizen for reporting potholes in the street, the Public Works Construction Commission (PWCC) said yesterday.
Without naming the recipient, a PWCC spokesman said the cash reward was granted for a report on the potholes in a Neihu street left by a Taipower working crew last month.
"The crew," the spokesman said, "dug up the street without permission."
He urged people to report unauthorized work on city streets. "Anybody who reports potholes will be rewarded," he promised.
The PWCC is working with the Taipei municipal government to rid the city of street potholes. For more information (0800-009-609).
