Matthews Morning Minute: October 10, 2018

News About Town: At Monday’s council meeting, Mayor Paul Bailey opened discussion about excessive speeding and pedestrian safety in downtown Matthews. The board brainstormed ideas for deterring speeders - including the addition of traffic furniture, new, higher visibility crosswalks, and increased police presence. So if you’re traveling down Trade or John, heads up! The speed limit is 25 so slow down, enjoy our town! Help keep our town pedestrian friendly.


News Around Town: The Matthews Elementary Boosterthon has been postponed for two days, but don’t fret, hump day can still be fun. For a mere $5 you might discover the next big star to come out of Matthews! The Butler High School Talent Show is tonight in the school auditorium, starting at 7 PM. 1810 Matthews-Mint Hill Road, Matthews.
