The lot where the sinkhole opened has been a convern recently. However, no one was injured and nearby lots have not been damaged.
City workers noticed the sinkhole on as they drove or walked to work this morning.
City Manager Paul Benoit believes the collapse may be related to a depression in the concrete where rainwater pooled.
"With the big storm over the weekend, it finally caved in," said Vernon Hall, of the city's parks department.
The block behind the American Legion building has caused concern in the past.
