MOUNT VERNON — At least 77 people showed up for the city’s public meeting on the traffic problems in the Edgewood Road area.

Those attending the session could examine maps and other exhibits of data about traffic in the area, talk to city representatives including the mayor, engineer, police and other staff from the engineer’s office, and record their thoughts and suggestions about what needs to be done in the area.

They could even talk to representatives of the traffic engineering firm that might be hired to help come up with a plan for alleviating the problems in the area. They sent representatives even though they have not been hired to work on the project.
