Prospects dim for stoplight
Finding little evidence of a traffic problem and in fact finding praise for the stop signs at East Auglaize and North Wood streets, the City Council Streets and Alleys Committee took no action on a request to re-install a traffic signal at the intersection.
Judy Dubois, owner of Auglaize Embroidery, addressed council at the Aug. 18 meeting about having a stoplight re-installed at the intersection due to traffic issues.
Dubois stated at that meeting that, with the stop signs, it is very difficult to get out into traffic, especially in the afternoon.
“It’s just stop and go, stop and go,” Dubois said.
At-Large Councilman Dan Graf said at that meeting that the Streets and Alleys Committee, which he chairs, had discussed the issue.
“There have been no police reports indicating any increase in accidents at that intersection,” Graf said.
