A Menahga resident is worried that speeding problems on Highway 71 through town could result in a serious accident.

Kurt Clark, who lives on Highway 71 in Menahga, across from Innovis Health, approached the Menahga City Council last week to express his concerns.


Many vehicles don't slow down to 30 mph as they enter Menahga from the north, he said.

"They have three warnings but the semis just plow through," Clark said.
