Coun. Gorham having no report, the Chair recognized Mr. Sam Lugiano, 532 Union Lane, who advised the Council of an ongoing traffic problem he was having with the Marine Store next to his home. The problem had been on-going as eighteen wheelers were parked on the street, sometimes blocking his driveway and frequently fork-lifts were left in the middle of Union Lane as the trucks were unloaded. He felt it was a hazard and he had a particular concern since the installation of sidewalks on Union Lane under the safe path to schools program. He noted that sometimes the trucks parked on the sidewalk. He added that employees parked on the grass across from the establishment and he felt that it was inappropriate.
Court. Scott agreed and noted that the Council had addressed this issue in the past. The consensus of the Council was to refer the matter to the Traffic Safety Officer for a full investigation.
