MOORE HAVEN – The Glades County Board of Commissioners will consider lowering the speed limit on County Road 721 (aka Reservation Road) when they meet Monday, Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. in the second floor meeting room, 500 Ave. J S.W.
At their last meeting, James Hull of Aim Engineering, told commissioners the road bed is not stable. Hull said he will request DOT to change the scope of work so they can use funding provided for paving to stabilize the road bed, but they will need more funding to solve the problem.
At the same meeting, Sheriff David Hardin said the Seminole Tribe has asked the speed limit be lowered on all of County Road 721 due to the number of accidents. The ordinance to be considered at the Jan. 25 meeting would change the speed limit to 30 mph.
Also on the agenda for the Jan. 25 meeting are:
• Lien relief for Bethel AME Church;
• A resolution authorizing a joint workshop between the Glades County Commissioners, Glades County School Board, City of Moore Haven and the Glades County Superintendent of Schools;
• The 2016-2017 SHIP report; and,
• A presentation by Libby Pigman of the South Florida Water Management District.
