Police Chief Grovo reported that the traffic light at the intersection of Routes 202 and 22 is not working properly since the DOT dug up a culvert on the Route 22 side. It appears that they cut into the signal and the wait is longer on the Route 202 side. The DOT has been called the correct the issue.
Chief Grovo reminded everyone that school buses are on the road and children and parents are waiting beside the road. There have been complaints about motorists passing school buses. Speeding has been reported on Route 112 by Mary Jane Road, Christian Row and Narragansett Trail.
The Chief also stated that the mud run on Chicopee Road was handled. If any one has any problems, the ATV Club is very responsive in handling any issues.
Motion made and seconded to adjourn the Meeting at 7:25 p.m. Approved 5-0.
