Hancock police chief outlnes draft snow plan



Hancock Police Chief Donald Gossage went over a draft snow emergency plan with the Hancock Town Council last week.

Gossage said he does not think the council will pass the plan in time to affect this winter.

Under the plan, parking would be prohibited in some parts of Hancock when the county's snow emergency plan is in effect. The requirements would remain in place for four hours after the snow emergency plan is lifted.

The change is necessary so the town can remove snow on certain roadways, he said.

The ordinance would apply to the following streets in the town's corporate limits:

HEIGHT="6" ALT="* "> Main Street.

HEIGHT="6" ALT="* "> Pennsylvania Avenue from Canal Street to Sensel Street.

HEIGHT="6" ALT="* "> Church Street from High Street to Main Street.

HEIGHT="6" ALT="* "> High Street from Church Street to Route 522.

All vehicles would have to be moved off the designated streets during those hours. They could be parked free at town parking lots.

Vehicles parked in violation of the ordinance could be ticketed or towed. The violation fine is $50.
