PUBLIC WORKS 05-01-02
Keith Browning, Director of Public Works/County Engineer and Co-Chair of the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee (TSAC), presented a Summary Report of the TSAC. Browning explained that one of the functions of the TSAC is public education on road and driver safety issues. The TSAC has identified several public education campaigns that it feels should be pursued. One of the campaigns that the committee felt was important on which to educate drivers is the presence of Slow Moving Vehicles (SMV's) on roads in the unincorporated areas. The TSAC is developing a poster to be displayed in areas that are frequented by drivers of rural roads and by farmers and equipment operators who use the roadways for transporting SMV's. The TSAC would also like to place advertisements in the Lawrence Journal-World on the need to be alert for SMV's. Jones made a motion to approve expenditures by the County, if necessary, to place advertisements for this purpose. Johnson seconded and the motion carried unanimously.
McElhaney moved for adjournment; Johnson seconded and the motion carried unanimously.
