CARBON CLIFF — Carbon Cliff officials are concerned that residents are driving over curbs, breaking them down in the process.

At Tuesday's village board meeting, trustees said they need to find a solution for the problem or the village will be continually spending money on repairs.

Officials said village employees are getting estimates on fixing potholes.

The next village board meeting will be at 7 p.m. April 2, at the village hall.
