Animal Cruelty Case in Waynesboro - September 25











We are currently on scene at 1616 5TH St. working an animal cruelty / welfare case.

Animal control received a call for a foul odor in the vicinity of the residence and upon arrival officers confirmed it was emitting from 1616. Upon looking into the back yard three dogs were observed in the rear of the residence with a significant amount (ground practically covered) of animal feces in the back yard. Animal control was unable to get an answer at the door of the residence and summoned patrol officers to assist. Upon arrival these officers continued to attempt to make contact because a TV and fans were on the residence. Finally, officers made contact with the owner of the house who consented to a search of the residence and the removal of any animals found therein. Officers entered but found cat liter 4-5 inches deep on every surface. The door had to be forced open due to being blocked by litter and debris on the floor. Many interior doors were the same. In addition to the three dogs animal control officers found at least 20 cats in an around the residence. 9 cats, in addition to the 3 dogs were voluntarily relinquished to AC and will be placed in the custody of the SPCA. In addition code enforcement officers from the city have condemned the residence and taken steps to restrict access.

Arrested on the scene was the owner of the residence: William Pettry, 48 years of age who will be charged with multiple counts of Animal Cruelty.

VDOT MEETS OR EXCEEDS ALL PROJECT COMPLETION AND BUDGET GOALS FOR FIRST TIME- September 20

VDOT MEETS OR EXCEEDS ALL PROJECT COMPLETION AND BUDGET GOALS FOR FIRST TIME

Final report for fiscal year 2007 released this week

RICHMOND—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) reached a major milestone in its performance by meeting or exceeding all on-time and on-budget project performance goals for fiscal year 2007. It marks the first time in the agency’s history that all of those targets were met or exceeded. The results were released yesterday as part of the department’s quarterly report issued to the Commonwealth Transportation Board.

For the fiscal year, 80 percent of all construction and maintenance contracts were completed both on schedule and within budget. The agency also surpassed the statewide construction quality compliance goal with a 91.9 percent rating.

VDOT has significantly improved its project performance since initial performance reporting began in 2001. At that time, 20 percent of construction contracts were completed on time and 51 percent of construction contracts were completed within budget. Thirty-eight percent of maintenance contracts were completed on time and 59 percent of maintenance contracts were completed within budget.

“I am proud to report that VDOT this year exceeded all it performance targets, and I attribute our success to a more deliberate focus on project management and improved collaboration with our contractors and the localities,” said Commissioner David S. Ekern. “Starting this fiscal year, we will take performance reporting to a new level by adding customer satisfaction, financial accountability, safety and VDOT management measures – making our business even more transparent to our stakeholders, particularly Virginia ’s taxpayers.”

Deadlines:
Construction contracts completed on time (target, 70 percent)

In a major effort to provide citizen access to VDOT’s performance measurements, the agency began releasing quarterly reports and launched its Dashboard in 2003. The Dashboard is an online system that provides the latest status on construction, maintenance, operations, safety, finance and environmental compliance.

VDOT OPERATIONS PROGRAM PROVIDES QUICK FIX - September 19

VDOT OPERATIONS PROGRAM PROVIDES QUICK FIX

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation Staunton District continues to focus on a System Operations program. According to Northwestern Regional Operations Director Dean Gustafson, the program provides quick, inexpensive operational enhancements to areas that have no funding or funding far into the future for major improvements. Using a traffic analysis and site evaluation, VDOT staff can draft prospective solutions to developing or on-going traffic problem areas.

The program has brought a benefit to the Interstate 64 interchange at Exit 94, which is where the new Waynesboro Town Center shopping center is located. The westbound exit ramp brings traffic to Route 340 and about 800 to 1,000 vehicles use this ramp in the afternoon rush hour. With the new shopping center situated left of the intersection, traffic back-ups on I-64 could be reduced with a left-turn and a right-turn lane from the ramp onto Route 340.

Gustafson said, “We evaluated the shoulders and pavement width and determined by re-striping the Route 340 end of the exit ramp, VDOT was able to add a 200 foot turn-lane. The result is two 12-foot turn lanes.”

Gustafson points out that VDOT worked with the City of Waynesboro and both entities agreed that without this improvement, heavy traffic volumes at the interchange could back traffic up onto the I-64 mainline. The City of Waynesboro also had the developer install a traffic sensor at the end of the westbound exit ramp to help the signal move traffic. He notes that back-ups are still possible, but the ramp modifications greatly reduces this potential.

Gustafson said, “It is a small, low-cost but high impact action that will help until we can substantially reconfigure the interchange.” VDOT will begin designing a project to improve traffic flow at this interchange early next year and has about $3.2 million in funding towards any improvements that might follow, two to four years from now.

The ramp work was completed on Sept. 12.

Motorists are reminded to use extreme caution when traveling through work zones. For further information on the location of work zones throughout the state, call the Highway Helpline at 1-800-367-ROAD. Traffic alerts and traveler information can also be obtained by dialing 511. In areas where 511 is unavailable, dial 1-800-578-4111. TTY users can call 711 to obtain these services. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.

BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS TO MIDDLEBROOK LOOP COMPLETE



STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation has finished a two-mile shoulder improvement for the Bicycle and Pedestrian Middlebrook Loop on Route 603 and Route 677 in Augusta County in June 2007.



The Middlebrook Loop is approximately 9.5 miles long on Route 876, Route 602, Route 677, Route 603 and Route 252.



“The improvements were done to a narrow road that had one paved lane and very wide gravel shoulders that forced automobiles onto the shoulders in the face of oncoming traffic,” said Augusta County Board of Supervisors Chair Nancy Sorrells. “By paving the shoulders, the safety of motorists was improved as well.”



The Central Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Pedestrian Committee, which was created about three years ago, did a bicycle plan for the entire region (Rockingham, Augusta, Rockbridge, Highland and Bath counties), according to Bonnie Riedesel, director of planning. This committee, which was appointed by local government, identified 42 routes in the entire region to focus on improvements for bicycle and pedestrian use. The committee identified and named each of the 42 routes, which is how the Middlebrook Loop was created.



Committee Chairman Lee Hersch emphasized that all improvements will be made to existing roadways in order to allow all forms of transportation to safely share the road.



This is in line with VDOT’s statewide policy to provide framework to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians with motorized modes during the planning, funding, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the roadway network.



“We studied more than half of the 42 routes this summer,” said Riedesel. “VDOT loaned us an intern to take field measurements of these routes. Middlebrook Loop is the first route we studied in May.”



Once Middlebrook Loop was studied, a recommendation to widen the shoulders was submitted to VDOT by the committee. VDOT approved this recommendation in June 2007, which resulted to paving two miles of shoulder.



“The newly established partnership between VDOT and the regional bicycle pedestrian committee has been a win-win experience,” said Sorrells. “It is also safer for motorists and the additional pavement makes it easier for farmers to maneuver their wide equipment along narrow country byways.”



Future activities for the committee include acquiring funding for bicycle safety signage such as “Share the Road.”



“We have a grant submitted to VDOT where we have applied for funds to do a study to find where in our region would be appropriate for the “Share the Road” signage or safety signage,” said Riedesel.



Motorists are reminded to use extreme caution when traveling through work zones. For further information on the location of work zones throughout the state, call the Highway Helpline at 1-800-367-ROAD. Traffic alerts and traveler information can also be obtained by dialing 511. In areas where 511 is unavailable, dial 1-800-578-4111. TTY/TDD users can call 711 to obtain these services. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.

Kizmet - September 13











































It is with great sadness that the Waynesboro Police Department announces the death of its longtime K-9, Kizmet. Kizmet was a 12 year old German Shepard that the department acquired in December of 1999. He was immediately partnered with K-9 officer Det. Jesse Shaver who has been his handler ever since. Kizmet died Monday Sept. 10th after a short battle with Cancer. During his nearly 8 years of service he has been instrumental in several major drug cases and won several accolades for his accomplishments. He will not only be missed by Det. Shaver and his family but by the entire department and the city as a whole.

Attached is a biographical sketch of Kizmet and his accomplishments and a photo.
