Longtime resident Bill Mead presents a PowerPoint of flaws he sees in the plan Tuesday to council along with a petition signed by 342 residents opposing the roundabout. The petition called for the following actions: Stop preparations for construction of the roundabout immediately, replace planned roundabout with a signalized intersection and adopt a moratorium on roundabout planning for 10 years. Council voted 6-1 to accept the petition, thank petitioners for their efforts and take no action. Councilor Pete Sheehey voted against the motion.
