Gaming Square stop sign to remain
The Hampstead Town Council voted Monday not to remove a stop sign at the entrance to Gaming Square.
Councilman Gary Bauer made a motion to have the sign removed, but abstained in the vote.
He had suggested at the Aug. 16 council meeting that the sign be removed, but his motion died for lack of a second.
Councilman Arthur Moler voted Monday to remove the sign. Council members Jacqueline Hyatt, Wayne Thomas and Dwight Womer voted to retain it.
"I don't understand why it was ever installed," Mr. Moler said. "It should not have been."
"Hardly any cars stop there," said Ms. Hyatt.
However, Mr. Womer said, "I am definitely against removing that stop sign simply because nobody stops for it."
"What is the harm of leaving it there?" said resident Denise
Justus. "You could be jeopardizing someone by taking it down."
