Addressing Speeding Council unanimously approved a motion put forward by Mayor Patrick Van Minsel intending to address speeding issues in the community. Many residents have raised concerns about speeding on District roads and the safety of the public is a priority for Council, as is the protection of municipal infrastructure. Council directed District administration to bring forward short and long-term solutions to address speeding, including the potential of a 40 km/hr speed limit on all District roads and additional signage and speed corridor readers.
