County commissioners on Monday approved lowering the speed limit on East Delaware Avenue to 30 mph in an effort to cut down on the number of semi-trailers speeding through the area. The panel also approved setting the gross weight limit on that road at over eight tons.
District 3 Commissioner Jim Rogers said an increase in traffic in that area (also known as Old Golf Course Road) has led to fears that children may be injured or killed when the speeding vehicles travel on that street.
The panel also approved a planned survey of the Sheriff’s impound lot, 106 E. Creek Ave. Officials want to ensure that the impound lot is fenced properly. “We just want to make sure we know our boundaries,” said Ray Watts, the commissioner for District 1.
