The Beloit City Council rejected a pair of proposals to remove stop signs from city intersections at Monday night’s meeting after listening to citizens’ concerns.
Council Member Clinton Anderson argued in favor of keeping the signs as they are at the Wisconsin Avenue and Emerson Street until they city implements traffic calming measures.
Councilor Kevin Day, the lone vote in favor, said he was a bit confused because it came in front of the traffic committee where the proposal was approved as well as with city staff.
Another proposal, to remove signs at the intersection of Bushnell Street and Central Avenue was also rejected.
Councilor Sherry Blakeley said while she appreciated the work that went into the study, she was in favor or traffic calming measures as opposed to removing the signs entirely.
Day was the only vote in favor of removing the signs on both proposals.
