According to a city assessment, Kennedy Drive is the residential street in most disrepair. As such, councilman Ricky Branham said the street should take priority on the list.

Some council members also mentioned repairing Crestwood Drive or Dean Street, since a new school opens in the area next fall.

To finance the repairs, Branham suggested using a $100,000 carryover in the city’s general fund, a plan city manager Brian Humphress supports. 

City officials are also in the early stages of planning a fourth round of repairs to U.S. 224.

Humphress said the city wants to establish right-of-way boundaries in the next two months, with plans to contact business owners who will be affected. 

Council also unanimously approved a longstanding, mutual-assistance agreement between Willard and Norwalk police departments.

Dean St should be replaced. It literally is about a football field long and wont eat much of the 100k up. Crestwood? Really? That road is a golden road compared to Kennedy.
