The Conway City Council will discuss traffic-calming procedures and fleet maintenance services during its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the District Court Building.
The meeting is open to the public and will be preceded by a 5:30 committee meeting to discuss non-uniform employee pensions.
Street and Engineering Department Director Finley Vinson, at the city council’s request, will present an ordinance and a resolution for a citywide Neighborhood Traffic Calming program for neighborhoods who want the city to provide traffic relief such as speed humps, mini roundabouts or other measures.
The ordinance would require applicants to form a traffic calming committee of three to six people with different addresses within the neighborhood, with one acting as chairperson. The chairperson would submit the committee’s traffic issues along with a $250 fee.
Vinson or his designee would then determine an appropriate traffic-calming if warranted.
“If the requirements for City funding are met, construction will be scheduled as funding becomes available,” the ordinance reads in part.
The resolution is similar except there is no application fee and if the application is denied, the committee can’t reapply for five years.
Aldermen will also vote on a proposal for fleet maintenance services for city vehicles.
Five city employees from the sanitation, police and purchasing departments formed a committee to review the three proposals received.
Based on “experience, security, certifications, location, cost, facilities and equipment, Hazmat and record keeping,” the committee recorded during site visits, it recommended the city accept Green Toad Tire and Auto’s proposal.
