Request for GOOSE CROSSING Sign Tabled

April 26, 2011

04/27/11 The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety had a second request to have the city erect GEESE CROSSING signs on South Michigan Road near the Eastwood Estates Subdivision.

Two weeks ago Kent Borggren presented a request to install warning signs that Canadian Geese cross Michigan Road from the pond on the east side to a pond on the west side.

During Monday night’s city meeting a Ron Smith presented a request to have signs installed and suggested lowering the speed limit in the area.

Plymouth Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt said it would cost the city $40 for each sign, $19.95 for each post and $4.21 for each break-away bracket.  Two signs would be needed, on north of the pond on the south bound lanes and one south of the pond on the north bound lane.  Total cost for materials is $ $128.34 plus an hour of labor for two city employees.

The Board of Public Works and Safety tabled the requests and will request the two residents who don’t live in the city to appear before them with their request at the next city meeting on May 9th.

Mysteriously a make shift GOOSE CROSSING sign appeared on a speed limit pole Tuesday evening south of the pond for north bound traffic.
