HEADLINE: CUTTING SPENDING IN FOUNTAIN HILLS
WHAT: Summary of February 21 Town Council Meeting
Spending almost $400,000 for design & engineering for a roundabout at Saguaro & Avenue of the Fountains was rejected. Councilmembers Freidel, Kalivianakis, Skillicorn, & Toth voted to reject wasteful spending.
WHY: Roundabouts are meant to help traffic flow but do not improve pedestrian safety. That money can be used for needed town road maintenance. That intersection was recently rebuilt/paved with an expected lifespan of up to 25 years – why tear it up now?
