(KSL News) Unwanted asphalt is being used to repair potholes.
Pat Gorman and his company, Amen Paving, are filling potholes for businesses all over the Salt Lake Valley, even if they can't afford it.
"That's what we're trying to do, give back a little bit. We want people to know the type of company we are. We're not all about your money. Everybody eventually is going to have money and help us out. We want to help them out while they're down and out," Gorman said.
Gorman uses leftover materials from jobs he would otherwise throw away. He keeps a list of those who contact him with a need. And when he's in the area with the extra asphalt, he and his crew stop by and fill potholes at no charge.
"I know how things are going and we just want people to know that even in a rough time, we're here for them," he said.
Gorman says he first started his pothole filling project about 4 years ago.
