Township supervisors tabled a motion to establish a four-way stop sign at the intersection of East Center and North Main Streets, pending a traffic study completed by Borton Lawson, township engineers.
In making the motion for the study, Chairman Jeffrey Box said it is necessary for the township to have a full understanding of safety issues and traffic patterns affecting the intersection before voting on the issue.
“Personal opinions aside, I think we should have a traffic study done and I believe it will reflect the need for a four-way stop sign at that intersection,” said Kingston Township Chief of Police Jim Balavage.
Shavertown Fire Chief Gary Beisel voiced concerns in regard to the sign, saying it could result in increased traffic congestion and affect traffic flow from Route 309.
Box said the board would again discuss the matter at its June meeting, pending completion of the traffic study.
The board also tabled a motion to make South Main Street a “one way,” pending further clarification of its content.
In another matter, the board approved the adoption of Windy Street and Avalon Court within the Slocum Estates Subdivision.
The board ratified Laura Slocum as tax collector for the township effective March 4.
The board approved the Lands at Hillside Farms Fall Festival to be held on Oct. 5 and 6.
The next meeting of the Kingston Township Board of Supervisors will be held at 7:30 p.m. on June 12.
