The flashing speed limit sign previously purchased by the council for Glenn Carrie Road has been delivered and is ready for installation.
“Ten big boxes were delivered this morning containing all the pieces for the flashing speed limit sign,” said Mayor Paul Elkins at Hull’s September council meeting. “Installation will have to be professionally done, so I’m open to suggestions on getting both the concrete and sign erected.”
“This is the kind of project that has to be done once and done correctly, so we need to think about who we can get to do this type of job,” he said. “It looks simple on paper, but I learned a long time ago that’s not always the case.”
Commissioner Mike Youngblood expressed gratitude to the council.
“I’d like to thank the council for reconsidering the idea of speed bumps, and choosing these flashing signs as a reasonable alternative,” he said.
Elkins said he feels the lights will be helpful.
“We think that this system will beneficial to all concerned, and will hopefully make everyone aware of the traffic problem,” he said. “If we can save one life or keep one individual from being hurt, then it will be money well spent.”
In other matters, the fire department is having a chicken barbecue Oct. 26. The council is considering removing the unusable fountain in the city, and replacing it with a picnic table or decorative flower bed. Also, Councilwoman Paige Philips ran unopposed in the recent election for her current position on the council, and mayor-elect Mike Jones, who also ran unopposed, will take on his role beginning Jan. 1.
