Council members discuss speed limits in Seeley Lake on Monday

Posted: Updated:
SEELEY LAKE -

Seeley Lake Council Members will be holding a discussion this coming week about speed limits in Seeley Lake.

The speed limits in Seeley Lake were lowered about two years ago but now, on the request from one of the Seeley Lake Council Members.

The council has decided to open a discussion about the current limits in town for a meeting Monday night. 

One resident ABC FOX Montana spoke with said she has no opinion on whether the speed limits should be changed.

However, she sees both sides of the issue but told ABC FOX Montana people in town are divided on the subject.

"A lot of people see highways as for commencers, not to drive slow. Not to drive 25mph. But then on the other hand, you have a lot of people… And I'm mom so I see that, you know… Do I want people driving that fast with my kid riding his bike down the highway to go to the ice cream place. And so there's that side of it too. So the community is pretty split on it,” said Sarina Gilpin, Seeley Lake resident.

ABC FOX Montana spoke to another resident about it and for her the speed limits in town are fine for now.

"I actually like them. It took a while to get use too. But I have teenagers now that ride the roads a lot on their bikes and their walking down town a lot,” said Megan Shelmerdine, Seeley Lake resident.

The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 9th at the Barn.
