Trustees in Godfrey are taking a closer look at traffic around Evangelical School. The school is on Cook Street, which some people view as a frontage road along West Delmar. Technically, its address is listed as on Homer Adams Parkway. Sergeant Jim Goeken of the Madison County Sheriff's Department says they have not seen any safety issues crop up in the area recently, and would like to keep it that way.
Trustees have asked the Village Attorney to draw up an ordinance that would establish a school zone designation and an appropriate speed limit for the area near the school. In addition to Cook Street, the ordinance would likely include a portion of Pierce Lane as well. The Village Board may get its first look at the ordinance November 15.
