Stinky hole on West Maple

Potholes on West Maple Avenue are common, but there was something about the hole between 4th and 5th streets that caught City Marshal Terry Darbonne’s eye Tuesday afternoon.
“For some reason out of the corner of my eye ... it looked like a hole that was bigger than normal,” he said.
Darbonne drove his unit around the block and stopped near the hole.
“I saw the water underneath the roadway, which I figured that was odd because it hadn’t rained,” he said.
When he walked by the hole it started crumbling in, he said.
