Posted July 17, 2001 7:03 a.m. EDT

— The city of Fayetteville is taking steps to curb speeding through its neighborhoods.

Monday night, the city council unanimously agreed to lower neighborhood speed limits to 25 miles per hour. The current speed limit is 35 miles per hour.

The estimated cost to make and install 900 new signs is estimated at $54,000.

City leaders say the lower speed limit would save hundreds of city and police man-hours now spent investigating complaints.
