PERRY -- Perry City Council considered this week whether to place restrictions on some city roads but let the item marinate a little until firm decisions could be made.
The council has discussed at length ways to preserve city roads. The latest idea would restrict the weight and size of loads that roll through town. But, Mayor Jimmy Faircloth said, council has logistical questions.
Faircloth said the biggest concern is enforcement. How would an officer measure the load? Would the city need to purchase oversized scales? How much time would it cost officers?
Council also pointed out the county and state own many of Perrys roadways, Faircloth said.
The city recently finished an extension of Ball Street with hopes it would give truckers an alternate route around downtown. But management has informed council truckers havent been using the route as much because its not seen as better than other routes and turning at one intersection is difficult.
