PARK CITY — Aldermen agreed Thursday night to add a three-way stop sign at the intersection of Teske Boulevard and Old Plank Road, and remove the four-way stop signs at Teske and Jen Avenue.

After conducting a traffic study, the City Council decided to make the change and resolve an ordinance conflict at the two intersections.

Aldermen also decided to hold off participation in a commercial recycling program that would collect and refurbish unwanted clothing, shoes and household textiles contributed at two centralized collection bins and offer them for resale.

The used clothing would periodically be picked up by USAgain, a recycling reseller, transported to their central collection points, processed and either resold for domestic use or shipped overseas.

Mayor Steve Pannell said while the program has its merits, he has also been in touch with Solid Waste Agency of Lake County officials who are also considering a similar program. He said it would be prudent to “wait and see what SWALCO comes up with before making any commitments,” he told aldermen. They readily agreed.

In other action, the mayor presented a proclamation to two enthusiastic young girls who have provided exemplary volunteer services by participating in the city’s recent Santa Run and Christmas Needy Food Basket Programs.

Elexis Holderbaum, 10, and sister Elysa Holderbaum, 9, granddaughters of Police Chief Water Holderbaum, were cited by Pannell for “their selfless volunteerism and dedication to better the lives of people in need.”
