Nicotra said, "And then to find out that there was a light put on the corner of Greiner and Shimerville. And that speed limit's only 35 miles an hour. So we went through the whole expense of having a light put there, when this one was priority #1."
News 4 has confirmed changes are coming, just not as soon as residents would like.
"I don't know what we need or what it's going to take for somebody to recognize that this is something that needs to be done immediately," Nicotra said.
