DORA – The Dora City Council once again revisited the issue of speeders on Reid Road. For the last few months, the council had been considering complaints from residents that they were concerned about drivers cutting through the neighborhood.

The council considered a stop sign, speed bumps, speed tables and other options to slow drivers. Concerns over the city’s possible liability with speed bumps or tables eliminated those from consideration. The council ultimately decided to set the speed limit at 25 miles per hour and increase patrols to enforce the limit.

“There’s no doubt police presence over there will slow them down,” council member Robbie Busby said.

The council said they were unaware of when a speed limit was last posted on the road, but the city’s street department has now posted signs on the road.

In other business:

•The council approved a proposal from Rick Watson to build the city a website.

•The council also agreed to lease uniforms for the street department. The lease agreement will provide uniforms for the workers that will be picked up, laundered and dropped off each week.
