JERSEY CITY - Potholes in Jersey City are getting fixed faster, thanks to some changes made by the city council.

Officials say there will be a 24-hour turnaround on getting potholes filled one they are reported.

The task has been turned over to the Jersey City Municipal Authority, which has more manpower than Public Works and will work around the clock.

Some drivers say they're already seeing and feeling the difference. 

The mayor's office reports the city has filled 5,381 potholes at 920 locations so far this year.
