Village of Liverpool moves to control traffic on Third Street

— At their monthly meeting on Nov. 21, the Liverpool Village Board of Trustees approved the addition of two stop signs on Third Street, one at the corner of Birch Street and one at Balsam Street.

For decades, Third Street had no stop signs, but that should change within a week or so, said Village Clerk Mary Ellen Sims.

Mayor Gary White, a former Syracuse police officer, noted that motorists often exceed the speed limit when driving on Third Street which connects Oswego Street to Hickory Street.

The local law passed last week by the village board also lifts certain prohibitions against parking on Fourth Street between Outlook and Hickory streets.

Leaves leaving, stakes coming

Meanwhile, DPW crews are planning for winter snow by erecting wooden stakes with red markings to delineate snow-plowing borders on village sidewalks. Asmus requests that residents refrain from moving or removing the stakes.
