Speed Indicator Now In Use
In keeping with on-going efforts to help reduce costs the town has recently entered into a joint purchase with the Village of Voorheesville that will help both municipalities address the issue of speeding drivers.
In March we took delivery of a new speed indicator sign that is co-owned by both the Town and Village. The sign will be used roadside to remind drivers of the posted speed limit and notify them of the actual speed they are driving. We hope this new speed indicator will help motivate drivers to obey local speed .
The agreement with the Village states that the municipalities will regularly alternate use of the roadside sign; each having use 2 weeks at a time. The speed indicator is portable and will be moved to a variety of locations throughout the Town.
