Just is a reminder that the paving of Eighth and Center is not cosmetic, but a matter of safety.
While I prefer to walk to work at the Lakes Artisan Center, I am hesitant to do so in the winter. Many are the times I have stepped off into the snowbank to allow two cars to pass.
Add this to a dark night and poor lighting and you have an accident waiting to happen. I have also walked to and from William Konkin Elementary (WKE) and had the school bus come uncomfortably close.
While I am not happy with having to pay more taxes, this project is a matter of providing a safe corridor for children and those who must walk to and from CNC, WKE, the hospital or downtown to get groceries and mail.
I do agree with Councillor John Illes, however that one sidewalk is quite sufficient.
