Grant will help Frisco keep speed down near school

FRISCO – The Frisco Police Department will use a $4,700 grant to help make the streets near the Frisco Elementary School safer.The department will place a permanent, solar-powered speed control device on Eighth Avenue near the school to reinforce drivers to slow down where kids are walking, Police Chief Tom Wickman said.The device will look similar to a regular speed limit sign, but will include a solar panel and a digital readout of a vehicle’s speed.The town hopes to have the new sign in place by next spring. This is the third consecutive year the Department of Justice has awarded the money to the department.In the past, Frisco has used the money to purchase equipment, such as evidence print kits and cameras and to upgrade handheld radios, Wickman said.
