An interesting motif from budget night: many councillors mentioned that a lead or even the lead "front-door" issue they encountered while campaigning was addressing speeding or other traffic safety issues in the community.
There was such consensus on this point that Coun. Bob Bell was successful in moving for money to go back into the budget to enhance traffic-calming this year.
Several streets were cited as ones in need of calming. Two raised by Bell as examples were Downey and Grange roads.
