were noted. It was also noted that the King Road is currently in the RSMS system as one section and that it should be split into three sections. Jim will research and correct those noted discrepancies.
There was considerable discussion of the projects scheduled for 2013 and 2014. Motions were made, seconded and discussed concerning recommended projects for 2013 and 2014 as follows:
Decision was made to recommend that a rehabilitation effort be made in 2013 on a section of King Road starting at Harvest Road and continuing for approximately 2200 feet. Cost figures were not yet available
Decision was made to recommend that a rehabilitation effort be made in 2014 on an
as yet to be identified section of Horse Corner Road extending for approximately 2200 feet. Cost figures were not yet available
A discussion was held concerning the traffic counts. Chairman Hall asked Jim to combine the various sources of counts into one document and have it available for the next meeting.
