Traffic Authority Meeting Info


***At this time speed hump requests have been suspended. This is due to multiple requests to have an existing approved speed humps removed. Therefore, we are in the process of creating a speed hump removal policy, as well as, revamping the current speed hump installation policy. We are currently working with the Town Attorney on this matter. Thank you for your patience. *
