Personal commentary

Thank you to our District 4 Magistrate, Matt Pendleton and the Taylor County Road Department for their quick response on a safety issue for the children in the Lyle and Lyle Spur Road neighborhood.

Mr Pendleton was contacted about a concern for the children's safety due to a blind intersection which a county school bus uses to make a turn around, neither a car approaching nor the bus driver had a clear view of approaching vehicles due to a hill.

Mr. Pendleton in turn made the concern known to the county road department and the very next day a sign was placed to warn drivers approaching the blind intersection.

It's wonderful to know that we have people in our local government that care, we cannot express our appreciation enough.

Thank you, from all in the Lyle/Lyle Spur Road neighborhood. - David Malcomson
