Public Works Driveway – Maple Drive

The city council discussed the use of the driveway that leads to the public works facility, the fire station and ultimately to Main Street. This driveway was gated for many years and only opened by the staff for their use.  However, it was opened a couple years ago to allow fire fighters faster access to the fire station and to allow the public works to use it without having to unlock it each time.  Mrs. Soukup  who owns property next to this driveway submitted a letter about her concerns that this driveway is being used by a lot of traffic and it has become a safety hazard in the neighborhood that is home to many small children.  The city staff is researching alternate options for this driveway.
