Watseka: truck routes questioned again

Another fall harvest season is underway. And a continuing issue is raised again in the city of Watseka. Where and what are the designated truck routes ?

Wear & tear on city streets always points to heavy truck traffic using routes they shouldn’t be on. But then, the question arises – are designed-routes properly posted ?

Mayor John Allhands says "we need to decide the roads to post and how to post them."

The issue was discussed again at this week’s Public Works Committee and Public Safety meetings.

Alderman Dennis Cahoe raised the issue last year. The city officials did meet with local farmers but it’s never been resolved.
