Ripon may see safety signs at parks

Caution: Children at play.

The Ripon Rotary Club under President Harrison Gibbs will be proposing the installation of safety signs at the city parks to elected leaders on Tuesday.

That’s during the 7 p.m. open session at the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

Gibbs has approached the Ripon City Council on few occasions recently, including a presentation on the service organization’s donation of the free-standing clock on Main Street adjacent to the Ripon Memorial Library, and Rotary’s adoption of the northbound off-ramp of Highway 99.

His proposed safety signs are designed as a friendly reminder to motorists that children are in the area and to proceed with caution.

In other agenda items, Council will:

Recognize the Mosquito’s Eastside Action Club with a proclamation for its involvement in the community during the last 45 years.

Appoint Debra Van Essen to the Planning Commission.

Consider the Development Fee increase for the San Joaquin County Multi-species Habitat Conservation and Open Space Plan for any new development within the City of Ripon. A public hearing will be scheduled beforehand.

Accept the proposed Water Meter Implementation Plan while also directing staff to go ahead with the program.
