Pitts. Commissioner B.G. Brown and Commissioner Larry <br />W. Dennison were both present. <br /> <br />3anice Schauer, representing the Chimacum Community Club: <br />Dick Schuff, Chimacum Fire Chief, and others re: Sto~ Light for Chimacum <br />Intersection and "Entering Chimacum" sian: Public Works Director, Gary <br />Rowe, reported that the Chimacum Intersection and the West Valley Road <br />are both on the 1986 road program for general improvements. A four way <br />stop light will be installed at the Chimacum Intersection, but the plans <br />for this have not been completed yet. A representative from the State <br />has been contacted about the Washington Traffic Safety Commission <br />program to provide technical assistance on how the intersection can best <br />be improved for safety purposes. <br /> <br />The County has been working on a project for placement of destination <br />signs in the County which is known as the Small Town Locator Sign <br />Program. Chimacum would be included in this program, which will <br />probably not be done before this summer. <br /> <br />3anice Schauer advised that she supports the installation of a four way <br />stop light at the Chimacum Intersection, because the chip trucks drive <br />through this area so fast that the ground vibrates. Mrs. Schauer <br />further stated that Dick Schuff, who could not be present today, wanted <br />to report that there are times when the fire trucks can not get out onto <br />the road because of the traffic at this intersection and a stop light <br />would help the Fire Department. <br /> <br />Tony Bodenheimer added that, especially with truckers that are familiar <br />with the area, there is no reason for them to slow down, unless they are <br />making a right turn to go to Indian Island. <br /> <br />AGREEMENT re: TYPewriter Maintenance: Steve's Office EQUip- <br />ment: After discussion of the few changes from the 1985 contract for <br />typewriter maintenance with Steve's Office Equipment of Sequim, Commis- <br />sioner Dennison moved to approve the contract as submitted. Commissio- <br />ner Brown seconded the motion. <br /> <br />Cecil Freeman re: Letter of complaint against the under- <br />staffina of the Health Department: Mr. Freeman presented his complaint <br />letter to the Board about the impact on timely inspections of on-site <br />sewage systems that is due to understaffing of the Health Department. <br />Chairman Pitts:advised Mr. Freeman that the Board knows that the Health <br />Department is understaffed, and that changes are being investigated to <br />help with this prOblem. <br /> <br />"VQL 12+ABt "I.cr ns <br /> <br />~~ .... <br /> <br />, <br />:'i, <br />
