You serious??
Who do you think appointed them in the first place?

I know that he appoints members. And now that the dirty laundry is being aired and it's blatantly obvious that they are doing shady things that they are afraid to do in the public eye - he needs to be pressured to take them off. Transparency...

There shouldn't be anything happening at any of these meetings that the public isn't allowed to hear.

The real issue is that WE keep building without adding sufficient infrastructure.(or coming up with such pathetic excuses that its a county/state road.=dont approve in the first place.)
also find it interesting that in a short time three new traffic lights went up on cedarbridge ave(that is a different issue on its own).is this the same "county roads"that it is so difficult to add a traffic light(as pine,prospect ect. are in desperate need of,not three or four way stop signs!=they keep saying its county road....hard to place traffic signal on county roads...)

That is probably why all of them went up at the same time.

I think the issue with that is that the township has no control over those roads or placing lights there at all, it's up to the county to do it. The county has been known in the past to place lights at intersections where there wasn't great need while ignoring other intersections desperate for a traffic light.

Like South Lake Dr and Hope? That is in desperate need of not having a light.

They tried a traffic light at pine and MLK, it just made more problems
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I used to live on that corner, when there was a stop sign on MLK only. there were daily accidents. So depends on how you define problems

Was there anything better with a traffic light over the 3 way stop?

They never actually had a traffic light. They used a crossing guard to simulate the timing of a traffic light. It was reportedly a disaster

I stand corrected. Either way I think the three way stop is better
