May 2008
Citizen work groups were formed by Kitsap County to address the divisive Speed Table issue in Hansville, WA. The Enhance group was to seek modifications to the tables for community acceptance. The Remove group was to seek alternatives to the speed tables.

May 2010

The two work groups combined into one committee. This committee continued research on modifications for the speed tables and alternatives to the speed tables. Their goal was to select one or more solution options to bring to the local community for endorsement and support. Community supported options would be presented to the Kitsap County commissioners for consideration/decision.

July 2010
Commissioner Bauer terminated the Hansville Speed Table Committee. Termination came prior to completion of committee goals and without obtaining community input.

This is really looking like quite a joke. It's astounding to look back and see how easily these bumps were put in, against county policy and with taxpayer dollars (also against county policy since eligible roads where speed bumps are considered appropriate must be funded by the road-front residents requesting them). And it's all because two groups of waterfront property owners whined enough and got their way and managed to stick it to the rest of us both financially and in daily irritation. When the vast majority of the whole community said get rid of those bumps, it's now become the longest, most bureaucratic process imaginable. (Whether you're for it or against it, the fact is, Congress took less time to pass the Health Care Bill!!) The Sheriff's Department, as evidenced by the poor response to legitimate questions, is as much part of the delaying game as the county commissioners. Bravo to those who continue to fight for the bumps removal. You are doing the lord's work!!
