Lapel - A state official sent notice to the Lapel Town Council that the placement of stop signs at a busy intersection was not the right thing to do. However, Lapel officials said the state had more than enough time to respond to the plan before the signs went up.
Gerry Montgomery, a representative of the Indiana Department of Transportation, sent an email notice to the council last week asking for time to speak to them during the Dec. 6 council meeting, according to Council President Gary Shuck. However, Montgomery did not appear at the meeting, nor did he return a voicemail message by press time.
In the correspondence, Montgomery said he wanted to talk about the new signs placed at Indiana 13, CR 300S and Pendleton Avenue.
