CLEVELAND-- Outrage over the I-Team's hidden-camera investigation into Cleveland's pothole program is heating up the halls of local government.

Members of Cleveland City Council are demanding answers from the administration. FOX 8 I-Team reporter Lorrie Taylor has learned they are now calling for an official investigation.

Meanwhile, here's how Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson responded Monday night to the two-hour lunch breaks.

"Everyone takes lunch at the same time. That's a half an hour the truck is empty. It takes an hour to get there and back. That's an hour and a half of downtime; now, that's what they say to me, so the remedy is, how do we minimize that downtime?" He went on to say, "It depends on whether you portrayed it accurately or not. If it's that they're fluffing off not doing their job, then of course, I'm angry; but if there's a rational reason for that and that we correct that rational reason to make it better, so there's not as much downtime, then that's the way."
