By Karen la Pierre Lapierre daily news. Net if Hays City commissioner Lance Jones has his Way changing sixth Street and seventh Street to two Way streets would be an improve ment for the City. The item was discussed at the Hays City commission work session thursday. Ism not a fan of one Way streets especially if they re wide enough to drive two ways Jones said. They re confusing. City manager Toby Dougherty said he found minutes from the 1990s that might explain Why the streets originally were designated one Way. During the 1950s, eighth Street was a Highway through town. Fort Hays state University students could travel to and from Campus on sixth and seventh streets and not have to fight the eighth Street traffic which might have been the reason for the original designation. He said sixth Street provides for an exit from the Campus after games and big events when everyone leaves at the same time. Sixth Street provides a really Good one Way exit out Dougherty said. Its a Quick Way to disperse traffic. City staff determined the one Way designation could be removed from seventh with no issues but sixth is narrower. Parking would need to be removed from one Side of the Street to ensure smooth traffic flow and recommended no change on sixth. Reaction of the other commissioners was mixed. Commissioner James Meier did not like the idea of having just a single one Way Street and not having one in the other direction. To change the streets to two Way would require paint removal and new signs Dougherty said. The topic was last discussed in 2007. It was to change All of the one Way streets in town to two Way. The commissioners will study the topic at a future work session. All of the com missioners wanted to ensure residents were notified and their input gathered. In other business the commission heard a memorandum to Amend a contract with her. Her is the owners representative for the Wastewater treatment Plant. The change is a requirement from the state revolving loan fund. There is no Legal or financial consideration. By Maggie Gebhardt Gebhardt daily news.
