Public works committee updates council

Bethel Village Councilman Tim Cherry updated council members about the status of traffic signal upgrades within the village at the meeting on Monday, Feb. 23.

“Village Administrator Travis Dotson met with Jim Brandstetter and a retired veteran with the Ohio Department of Transportation about the issue of traffic signals being either warranted or unwarranted,” said Cherry. “What it boils down to is that the grant and the upgrade will be for all signals, the one at Plane and Main and Plane and Charity will be upgraded. The signal at Main and South street is still being considered. The plans are being submitted this year and the signals will be replaced in August 2010.”
