The Pella City Council discussed the possibility of adjusting the speed limit on a well-traveled city street during Tuesday night’s meeting. Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini says what is being proposed would be a uniform speed of 35 miles per hour on Vermeer Road from East 8th Street to 240th Place at Vermeer Corporation. This would be a change from 25 miles per hour on half of the stretch and 45 miles per hour on the other half. As a compromise, however, the city would also install flashing “school zone” lights which would lower the speed limit back to 25 miles per hour during peak traffic times.
