Street Safety Top Priority For Sv Commission


Residents living along Moonlight Drive in Star Valley may soon breathe a little easier.

One of the town's busiest roads will receive some safety precautions to limit the amount of unrestrained driving, if the town council follows the recommendation of the streets and roads commission.

The commission voted 4-0 to recommend that ‘congested area' signs be posted along the street and that the speed limit be lowered to 15 mph.

Chairman Richard Pinkerton and members Phillip Aney, Pete Hold and Fred Horton Sr., comprised the commission members present at last Thursday's meeting.

The commission unanimously voted to recommend to Town Manager Vito Tedeschi that culverts be installed on Valley Road and Old Moonlight.

The commission was especially concerned with the condition of roads, in light of recent flooding.

The council will also receive a recommendation from the commission regarding the installation of 375 feet of guardrails along Valley Road. If the council heeds the commission's advice, the guardrails would not exceed $15,000.
