MOUNT VERNON —
A paving operation on Frye Road, and requests by one of the residents to the Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck, has turned into a controversy involving speed bumps, petitions, neighborhood traffic and dollar signs.

Todd Usher, a resident of the community since 2014, does not like the speed bumps that were put on Frye Road and is looking at the upcoming paving operation as an opportunity to get rid of all of them, or at the very least, the one that is closest to his house. He says he’s tried to discuss this with Storck but Storck will not meet with him to discuss this issue, Usher said, and has tried numerous times.

Storck is aware of Usher’s issue, and refers to Usher as a “frequent flyer,” at his office — over the past few years, Usher has been in for a few different reasons and knows Storck’s late night availability on Thursday nights during the week, but has not taken advantage of it. They’ve both been exchanging emails, but neither has picked up the phone.

“I’m curious why he won’t sit down with me,” said Usher.
