More Radar Signs to Come with Federal Grant Money
Tuesday, 09 June 2009

June 9-- Have you noticed the new radar speed signs on some Vidalia roads?  Vidalia Police Chief Frank Waits told the city council Monday night the signs have drastically reduced speeding in the city, and he hopes to add three more signs with the aid of a $14,000 grant of federal stimulus money.

“We’re filing for the Edward Burns Memorial Recovery Grant, which is a federal grant. And there will be enough money for us to be able to purchase three of the radar signs. We currently have five and we are going to purchase three more,” states Chief Waits.

Also at its June meeting, the  Vidalia council changed some land near J.R. Trippe Middle School from commercial to residential zoning, approved a bid of just over $17,000 from Johnson Construction and Roofing for a new roof on the Onion Museum, and heard compliants about the loud noise at Club Spice on Highway 292 West.
