The Valley Falls Vindicator July 11,2013 Page 7 by Clarke Davis Mayor Charles Stutesman swore in April Herbster as the new city clerk of Valley Falls at the July 3 meeting. She took a chair at the council table and was expected to begin work July 8. Attempting to cover three blocks with one set of warning lights for a school zone will not work any longer on K-16 Highway through Valley Falls. The school zone was discussed at the July 3 city council meeting. The flashing yellow lights are currently spaced with the intersec- tions of Elm, Oak, and Walnut streets between them. The city lost a recent city court case when someone entered from one of the side streets where there are no visible warnings of a speed zone. The plan now is to move the warn- ing lights so the 20-mph zone will cover only the Oak Street intersec- tion. Something will be done so the lights will be visible from both direc- tions. The mayor indicated there might be a problem locating them conve- niently for electrical service, but solar was also suggested. The mayor wants public input on relocating the Valley Falls Police Station, which is now located in city hall. The Delaware Township Library board has expressed an interest in taking over the entire city building once the city office has been moved to Broadway Street. To do that, new quarters are needed for the police. The mayor has scheduled that discussion for the Aug. 21 meeting.
