HANCOCK - The Hancock Town Council agreed to lower the speed limit on Center Street to 15 miles per hour after a councilman said cars frequently speed on the street.
The street's speed limit has been 25 miles per hour.
Councilman Darwin Mills, who lives on Center Street, presented the Town Council with a petition signed by residents of the street who wanted a lower speed limit.
"I've lived with this for the last four or five years ... It's time for something to be done," Mills said.
Hancock Police Chief Donald Gossage said police have done several speed checks on the street and the fastest speed they've clocked was 29 mph.
