Plank Road knoll to get warning signs
FERRISBURGH — In addition to hearing from Addison County Sheriff Don Keeler, the Ferrisburgh selectboard heard about a possible solution to a recent complaint about dangerous driving in town.
Board chairman Steve Gutowski said that road foreman John Bull was going to install warning signs on a knoll on Plank Road between South Middlebrook and Pea Ridge roads. Residents on Nov. 17 complained the spot was dangerous because of speeding drivers and limited visibility.
Officials might still talk to Panton and Waltham about speed limit signs if the warning signs are not effective. The board received a letter from another resident about the situation and still another resident spoke up at Tuesday’s meeting.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the selectboard heard from Gutowski that the town’s Vermont Green Line negotiating committee will sit down next week with the companies proposing the underground power line through Ferrisburgh. The meeting is set for 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8, to begin discussing how the line will be constructed, the nature of the easements involved, and how the town will be compensated for allowing the line to be installed under town roads.
