But Pearson said the roughly 26 neighbors she has contacted were OK with keeping the remaining stop sign in place.
Selectman David Mountain suggested holding a public session to give all residents a chance to weigh in on the matter. But Reilly said that once a stop sign is in place for several months, people get used to it being there, so it isn’t advisable to take it down.
The police chief stressed that normally when a request for a stop sign is made, the police department first assesses the intersection. If the assessment concludes signage is warranted, “we would kick it up to the town administrator to set up public hearings,” he said.
Only after the hearings take place and the residents have a chance to voice their opinions would he bring the recommendation to selectmen for further action, Reilly said.
