Effort is Part of Territorial Charter Days Community Improvement Projects

Silver City -- Finding cost-effective measures to slow traffic in Silver City is an ongoing public safety challenge, and Mayor Pro Tem Cynthia Bettison and town staff invite residents to come out and be part of the solution this Saturday, November 16th, when volunteers will paint a 3-D crosswalk at the intersection of Yucca and 23rd streets.

"This community public safety improvement project is designed to test this idea and see if it slows drivers down," said Bettison, who represents Silver City District One residents. "Public safety is always of the utmost concern to town staff and the town council, and this crosswalk is a way to test its effectiveness. It's also a fun way to get to know your neighbors, meet our public safety staff and participate in a community project that benefits everyone."

Classifieds: We have changed Classifieds. Check periodically to see if any news ones have popped up. The former software failed us, so it's just a category now, with prices posted.

Images: We have received complaints about large images blocking parts of other articles. If you encounter this problem, click on the title of the article you want to read and it will take you to that article's page, which shows only that article without any intruders. It's a software problem, not easily fixable, other than showing fewer articles per summary page. If you are a frequent visitor, you might not mind fewer articles per page, but if you only come once in a while, you likely want to see more articles to browse. Write me at editor@grantcountybeat.com to let me know your feelings on this issue.
