Dr. West spoke for a moment regarding his co-council liaison, Scott Matheson. He explained that it was not lack of interest by Mr. Matheson that he did not make all of the Authority meetings – – that he was also liaison to the Port Authority and they also meet on the second Wednesday of the month. He indicated that the members should feel free to call him with any issues they needed to discuss.
Mr. Hollowell asked Dr. West about the cul-de-sac of West Road and Dominion Blvd. Dr. West spoke for a few minutes regarding the widening of Dominion Blvd. and the need to reduce the number of intersections. He also spoke about the replacement of the steel bridge. He indicated that it was a really complicated issue with one alternative being the possibility of long-term tolls. He stated that it was the Mayor’s number one priority to construct the new bridge without tolls.
There being no further business, a motion was made, seconded and passed unanimously to adjourn the meeting.
The minutes are summary in nature and are not intended to be an exact transcript of the proceedings. The Authority maintains an audiotape of the meeting.
