PUBLIC SAFETY TEAM RECOMMENDATIONS 11-20-13 LMS
The November 13 meeting the Salmon City Councilís Public Safety Team was filled with crosswalk talk.
Team Chairman, City Councilman Ken Hill, reported to the City Councilís November 20 meeting that the team discussed crosswalks on Main Street and Shoup Street and recommended that painted crosswalks be placed on Shoup Street at the Andrews Street and the Church Street intersections.
The Public Safety Team is also recommending painted crosswalks and crosswalk signs be installed on Main Street because the present white rectangle markers are not in line with the traffic lanes and are not clearly visible to drivers. Hill said that situation leads to problems with the pedestrian traffic at the crosswalks, especially with the crosswalk in the middle of the 400 block.
The Calvary Chapel has requested installation of a stop sign at the intersection of Church and Shanafelt Streets. Reasons for the request have to do with the significant amount of pedestrian traffic when church services are beginning or ending plus the traffic from delivery vehicles and the number of Post Office vehicles at that location. Hill said the Public Safety Team is recommending the stop sign request be granted.
The City Council will consider the team recommendations.
Police Chief KV Felker brought the team up to date on installation of a camera system and some problems being encountered with the systemís software. It is hoped all issues will be resolved and that the camera system will be fully functional soon. The Chief will have an update for the Public Safety Team at its next meeting which is scheduled for December 11 at 5:15PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
