Police responsive to cut-through traffic

Posted7/21/2013 5:00 AM

I am frequently quick to criticize, so I should be quick to compliment as well. Our neighborhood has become more of a cut-through for speeding traffic with the construction on Milwaukee Avenue and Route 137. Out of concern for the many kids in the neighborhood, I contacted the village to see what could be done. Police Chief Herdegen responded quickly to my request with additional police presence in the neighborhood to try to address the speeding issue, and he discussed some potential long-term fixes as well. I truly appreciate their time and concern, and feel this is a great example of government working the right way!
