The estimated head count by the Iowa DNR is again high this year and while good for hunters, it is bad for drivers. Remember to be extra vigilant especially at sunrise and sunset and while most deer crossings are clearly marked, they don't always know they are supposed to be there. Unfortunately they cross in other places and at other times as well. The best thing to do is to slow down in crossing ar- eas, scan the road from side to side, if one is present slow down and if possible stop slowly until the animal(s) passes. It is not always the deer you see that strikes your car, but others in the herd. Unfortunately snow is predicted for our neighbors to the north and likely will not be far behind for us. Remember to have your vehicles winterized, cell phones charged and safety items placed in the trunk. Slow your driving down and increase the interval between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. Remember also that when a winter storm is forecast for our area to remove your vehicle from the street. This will allow our street crews to clear more snow at a faster rate, not only for youto travel but also ambulances, fire units, police cars and mail carriers as well. The fine for a snow parking violation has been increased to $35 and a tow may cost up to $100 for the vehicle owner, but lives could de- pend on that street being trafficable. We ask that you report to us today any abandoned vehicle, or items being stored in the street so we can remove them now well before the snows begin and if you are an owner of one of those items, please remove it now, save yourself some money and help your neigh- borhood and community be a safer place for all of us. Thank you again for your support. Agenda REGULAR CITY COUNCIL MEETING Norwalk Easter Public Library Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010 6 p.m. This is a tentative agenda only, which is subject to change.
