TABER Opposition was expressed at the recent meeting of town council against council's recent decision to re- move the four-way stop signs north of W. R. Myers School at 54th St. and 56th-Ave. The stop signs were installed last spring. The installation was tempor- ary. Council's decision was to re- vert to the former through traf- fic movement on 54th St. with yield signs on 56th Ave. The opposition came from Dick representa- tive of a neighborhood citizens' group of 73 persons who signed a petition saying they fear for safety of school children. Police Chief Gordon H. Hack- ing told council the signs should be removed soon as Central School is back in oper- He says a safety hazard does not exist. No decision was made by council. Suggestions were That zone signs be placed on all streets and avenues leading to school That additional signs are required at most schools in That a parents' patrol be es- tablished at the intersection in question if parents fear for stu- dent that increased surveillance in residential areas be provided to reduce unwarranted which may necessitate a second police cruiser during the sum- mer months.
