Four-way stops approved by Oakboro Town Council

Two requests made in the public comment section were approved at the September regular meeting of the Oakboro Town Council.

Dorothy Jackson requested the town establish a four-way stop at the crossroads of Center and West Fourth streets, saying she lives nearby and wanted to protect kids riding their bikes on the roads.

Commissioner Chris Huneycutt made a motion to approve the new four-way stop, seconded by Latoya Jackson, and the motion passed.

One block from the new four-way stop, an additional four-way was approved by the council at College and West Fourth. Huneycutt made that motion, seconded by Mike Efird, and the motion passed.
