Message from Steve Hudson the Safety and Security Director.

Steve Hudson, Safety and Security Director, said he was sorry he could not get this passed.  He said when he first took office residents told him they wanted something to be done about speeding. When he spoke to the Sheriff’s office they told him 3 things work for speeding, speed bumps, Radar and raising the speed limit.  His committee put forth 2 proposals, speed bumps in the January Board meeting and Radar use in this meeting, both have been voted down.
