Permanent Speed Tables Removal Process
In June 2019, the Village Council adopted Resolution No. 2019-83, allowing Village staff to "authorize the removal of permanent speed tables provided that two-thirds of the residents on the affected street, sign and approve for its removal and provided that all associated costs are reimbursed for said removal." All costs associated with the removal of the permanent speed tables are to be borne by the person requesting the removal.
