Safety Officials to Discuss Deer, U.S. 422 Barriers at Meeting Tonight
The safety committee meets at Solon City Hall at 6 p.m. tonight.
The Solon safety committee plans to discuss tonight concerns with the newly built traffic barriers along U.S. 422.
City council members are protesting the barriers because they believe they have made the highway more dangerous. The barriers are built only a few feet from the inside lanes, making it impossible for cars to pull off on that side or avoid a collision in front of them.
The committee is also set to discuss the city's deer culling efforts, which are now moving forward after an anti-hunting ordinance was defeated by voters earlier this month.
Specifically, the committee will discuss bidding out for a contract to process the deer meat harvested from the culling efforts. Solon plans to donate the meet to area hunger shelters.
The safety committee holds its monthly meeting at 6 p.m. tonight at City Hall.
