Mayor votes against four-way stop after council splits

ELMHURST – The City Council did not pass an ordinance that would replace a two-way yield at an intersection with a four-way stop Tuesday night.

After a lengthy debate over the Chandler Avenue and Adelia Street intersection left the council split 8 to 6 two weeks ago in favor of the Public Affairs and Safety Committee's report supporting the four-way stop, Seventh Ward Alderman Mark Mulliner changed his vote when the ordinance was presented this week.

The four-way stop was not warranted under the federal guidelines provided in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, and city staff also found no need for it.

With a 7 to 7 split, Mayor Steve Morley voted against the ordinance and even received applause from members of the public.

"I do not support the ordinance," said Morley. "I support the city staff and their recommendation."
