ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Riverside City Council wants lights installed in downtown, and council members want them now.

Councilperson Bob Schneider said he almost hit six bicyclists in the dark, and other council members told of similar issues.

MMS consultant Scott Pottorff had told the council earlier that the lights would be installed before RAGBRAI. The new lights are part of the city’s streetscape project of renovations in downtown along Highway 22.

“I apologize, I gave you bad information for that,” Pottorff told the council Monday. He said that the contractor installing the lights had not done the work and probably would not until the end of the project.

“That is not acceptable,” Schneider said. “That’s a safety issue as far as I’m concerned.”

Pottorff said he would talk with the contractor.

“I’ll see what I can do to push that,” he said.
