Message from Tom Scheben
Thank you for taking the time to email us expressing a public safety concern of yours. Sheriff Helmig has long held we are more efficient and effective in providing services when we partner with the people we serve.
We were doing exactly that when our traffic unit recommended the stop sign at Thornwilde & Crosspointe. The decision was made in response to Thornwilde residents' complaints concerning the safety of the school bus stop, people trying to cross the street to use the sidewalk to go to the pool, and (of course) the ongoing speeding complaints.
Our recommendation was then sent to Greg Sketch, County Engineer, who approved it.
