Lights Will Come Back On In Downtown Norfolk

NORFOLK - At Monday night’s meeting, the City Council voted unanimously to restore stoplights at the intersections of Norfolk Avenue and 2nd and 3rd Streets. The lights have been covered since spring to evaluate if they are valuable enough to pay for upgrades. Councilmen Dale Coy and Jim Lange pointed out that having the lights inoperable for several months revealed a safety issue with students at downtown dance studios. Both Coy and Lange suggested that some further action be taken to deal with the situation. Lange urged parents to consider parking their vehicles and walking their children to and from dance class.
