Speeding in our neighborhood continues to be a problem.
The HOA board has contacted the Sheriff's Department about speeding. They have run a radar survey but did were unable to catch speeders.
What can you do?
Contact the Sheriff's Department patrol commander, Lt. Brian Mennenga with your observations including specific information that may better engage in enforcement (eg more specific times, directions, days of week that are worse, particular vehicle, etc.).
