Bethany Council To Consider Permanent Stop Sign Near South Harrison Elementary School

Bethany’s Board of Aldermen will review an ordinance drawn up which would create a permanent stop sign to be placed along 22nd and Beekman during a meeting held Monday night. The issue was brought up by Councilman Randy Mann who cited safety concerns due to the visibility issues for motorists which travel south on 22nd Street to turn on to Beekman. The t-intersection of 22nd Street and Beekman is at a significantly elevated grade for motorists and creates visibility issues with the cars which are heading east on Beekman and cresting a hill. Currently, a temporary stop sign located at that intersection for Beekman traffic is used for traffic control during school start and dismissal times. The proposal for a permanent stop sign comes mostly with the 22nd Street motorist traffic safety in mind. The ordinance will be brought up at a future council session.

Bethany’s Council named Fire Chief Jacob Denum as the City Emergency Management Director. An appointment to such a position is a requirement of the state. The Emergency Management Director is in charge of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery of emergencies.

City Manager Jacob Taylor announced that the water main project which will run from Memorial Park to the First Baptist Church. The project has a completion date set for late October.
