DuBois City Rejects Request for Permanent Handicap Signs

DUBOIS – The DuBois City Council rejected a request from Dr. Jeffrey Rice to install handicap signs in front of the Trinity Chapel.  City Manager John “Herm” Suplizio recommended that council not install permanent signs.

Suplizio said permanent signs would take away a parking spot when signs are only needed a few times each week.  He recommended following the precedent of another church to allow signs to be temporally placed while there are services being held.  The council approved of this option.

City Solicitor Toni Cherry presented the first reading of Council Bill 1884.  If passed as presented, this would prohibit parking on Daly and Locust streets between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Tuesdays.

Suplizio also updated council on this year’s construction projects. According to him:

  • The bids will soon be sought for the second phase of the water well project.  The wells will be connected to the city’s water system during this phase.  The city will be allowed to draw 1.5 million from the drilled wells.
  • The Showers Field and Walkway projects, including a path under the Liberty Boulevard Bridge, are expected to begin in mid-June
  • The alley paving has been completed.
  • Line marking is 90 percent completed.
  • The Brady Street streetscape project is to be finished by mid-July.
  • The library project is projected to be completed next week.
