City Council May Improve Your Drive Home

Traffic may be flowing more efficiently in the city of Wichita Falls after Tuesday's City Council meeting.

On the council agenda is the approval of $107,000 for an upgrade to the city's current traffic control system. The current control system is 12 years old and city staff recommends it be upgraded. The new controllers would cover 75 of the 105 signalized intersections in the City. There is an option in the proposal to get 25 more next year. The City is also looking at spending 4B sales tax money for a dehumidifier at the Kay Yeager Coliseum and for a new sprinkler system at the J.S. Bridwell Ag Center. Those two projects total $340,000. The two projects had already been budgeted but came in over budget. The MPEC requested that the difference be made up in 4B sales tax money and the 4B Board approved the funds to be used.
