PLEASANT VIEW -- Restriping will be done on Pleasant View Drive from 800 West to 900 West after complaints from Councilmen Michael Humphreys and Todd Walker about how it is currently done.
Council members agreed to the re-striping because of humps in the road that can be felt by drivers.
"The striping we put down after the street was overlain. On the North side of 800 West we have curb approaches that bridge over the gutter," said City Administrator J.J. Allen. "As you drive down the street, you can feel those humps."
Allen said the cost to restripe the road would probably be $1,500 or less.
"With an experienced paving company, why did this happen in the first place? It wasn't that way before," said Councilman Tim Hjorten.
"Before, we didn't have a middle lane," said Allen. "Now we have a middle turning lane that wasn't there before, so traffic is driving to that edge."
Mayor Doug Clifford said the edge of the road was ground down a bit before it was repaved.
"I can remember coming along there and making the turn to go into the red church and it was steep, really steep, steeper than it is now. We put in a turning lane and that's worked well," said Clifford. He asked if the middle lane was now wider than the others.
"We could narrow it down. Someone said it is narrower than the middle lane on Highway 89 and I checked and it is," said Allen.
Humphreys said the city could be liable if people drive to edge of the curb and hit the humps in the road and said there are people who do drive to the edge of the curb.
"It's a solid white line. They shouldn't be crossing it," said Hjorten.
He said the city should go ahead and do the restriping done, and moved the job be completed for no more than $1,500. The other council members unanimously agreed.
