Village receives update on sign removal


ST. PARIS – Village council received an update on the removal of stop signs in the village during Monday’s council meeting.

In April, council voted to remove stop signs at the intersection of South Springfield Street and Troy Street. During the May 18 meeting, council was informed that signs were installed informing residents that the signs would be removed on June 15.

Council member Niven Jester said the stop signs were expected to be removed on Monday, but these plans were postponed until Tuesday. After the signs are removed, Jester said he expects police will patrol the area more aggressively.

Also during the meeting, Mayor Joe Reneer reminded residents that the village will hold a garage sale day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The event is being put on by Our Town St. Paris.

Reneer asked for drivers and pedestrians to be careful during the garage sale as the village’s population doubles on that date.

He also reminded residents that the Johnson-St. Paris Firefighters Association will host fireworks at 4 p.m. on June 27 between Graham Elementary and Middle schools.

Council was also reminded that the Our Town Association Annual Meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday at the Ivy Inn, 322 S. Springfield St. Residents are asked to RSVP through Our Town St. Paris President Billie Dever at 408-2697.
