Mayor Michelle Rogers told the council several requests had been made for stop signs at busy intersections. Aldermen voted to make the intersection of Hazel and Northwest Second a four-way stop as well as the intersections of Southwest Third and Ash and Southeast Third and East Pine. A stop sign will also be placed on the Walnut Ridge side of Midway Road where the Rails to Trails path crosses it.
