3. New Business
Resident Dour Miller brought a number of issues to the attention of the Committee
Asphalt grindings from the berm work completed last year by Specialized Paving has been spread onto the front yards of residents by snow plows. Mr. Miller provided pictures and indicated that he had removed 4 wheelbarrows work of grindings. We told Mr. Miller that if other grindings spread onto his property that he should contact the service department for removal.
Mr. Miller again asked that the Village either replace the No Turn on Red sign on the NW corner of River and Solon Rds. or remove the No Turn on Red sign on the SE corner of the same intersection. Mr. Miller believe that these signs were initially place at the intersection by action of Village Council, not by County directive.
Mr. Miller commented on some of the provision of the Deer Hunting ordinance. The chair will follow up and respond to Mr. Miller.
Mr. Miller also expressed his opinion regarding some of the signage in the Village that he feels places pedestrians and runners at risk.
