"There is nothing as permanent as a temporary solution."

The problem is not that nobody wants to fix it, the problem is about allocating time to fix it. The trick is to never explicitly allocate time to fix things. Make it part of something else when there is more time to do things properly. But always be out to try things right the first time, obviously not by giving "them" a choice between "good" or "quick".

The other thing is to never add "TODOs". Either do it now, or don't mention it.
