Can we relieve this with more signage towards the middle of Main Street? Wahl stated there are 20 mph signs in the old build- ing. Kolar stated that the County will be sending us the signage that is adequate. Moriarty is still con- cemed about the pedestrian crosswalks. Should there be pedestrian crossing signs posted?
