City To Take Steps To Make School Zones Safer

Walking to and from school is going to be made safer as traffic calming measures are on the way for 24 elementary and middle school zones in the city. 

Tim O'Reilly of Traffic services explains his department needs more resources to do the job people want done. There's a backlog of over 400 complaints about dangerous streets and his department has been too understaffed to get them all.

Common Council is committing to the 4 year project which is to be completed at the cost $40 thousand per school.
