After months of complaining residents of one St. Paul neighborhood got their wish.

They've been dealing with what they describe as a sinkhole in the intersection of Stickney Street South and Annapolis Street East. A broken water main a few months ago led to the sinkhole.

Neighbors say their calls to the city didn't get the problem fixed. 5 Eyewitness News called St. Paul and workers came out to patch the problem.

The city tells us they will do a permanent fix in a few weeks.

Meanwhile in the city of Minneapolis, the city council approved funding Friday for pothole repairs. The city is dedicating an extra $1 million dollars to help crews fill potholes faster.

The harsh winter did a number on roads, and city council members say this funding will go a long way to help repair all the damage.
