GENESEO — After a tragic death in the month of January on Lima Road and Country Club Road the Town Council of the Town will now hold a public hearing on March 10th at 7:15 pm to listen to public opinion on making the intersection a four four way stop.
The intersection which is currently a two way became deadly earlier in the year when Michelle Slack, 36, died after allegedly running the stop sign and colliding with a large truck, under the proposal the speed limit will remain 55 mph on the road.
The Executive Secretary of the Livingston County Traffic Safety Board, Pattie Johnston, wrote a letter addressed to Town Supervisor William Wadsworth stating, “As for the speed reduction at that location we do not feel that it will meet the New York State Department of Transportation criteria. We do feel that if the four way stop was installed that it would keep the speed down.”
The local Law 1 of 2011 will become effective immediately upon filing with the New York State Secretary of State.
