Q. – Since the construction on Virginia street began, a lot of vehicles now use N. Frances as a cut through. This in itself is not an issue. However, there are a lot of vehicles that go down the street at very excessive speeds and ignore the stop signs. Is there any way to get more patrol along this portion of N. Frances? It has become quite a danger to the children in the neighborhood. Thank you.

Answer – Thanks for your inquiry.

The construction in the area is something all of us are having to bear and I appreciate your frustration. We will make sure our Patrol Officers are aware of your reported problem and ask them to take extra steps to keep your neighborhood safe. You will be hearing from Captain Arley Sansom, the Patrol Division Captain regarding this issue. As soon as TxDot completes the construction, the area will be much nicer and safer.

Sincerely,

 

Hal Richards, Mayor
