Mayor Daniel A. Murphy presented a plaque to Cohill and praised her involvement with the Interfaith Service Coalition, police department, local Halloween activities and Washington County Housing Authority.

Bridge replacement plans nearly complete

HANCOCK - Plans to replace the bridge in Kirkwoods Park are almost complete.

At its meeting Wednesday, the town council moved that the town's engineers send the plans out to bidders pending approved work permits from the state and county.

The planned bridge replaces the bridge that was washed out in the fall of 2003, Town Manager David Smith said.

Hancock has budgeted about $200,000 for the bridge, which will span 60 feet, Smith said.

New bandstand planned

HANCOCK - At its meeting Wednesday, the town council passed a motion to partner with the Lions Club in constructing a new bandstand near the Lions Club pavilion.


The planned bandstand will be 30 feet deep.

Representatives of the Lions Club said the club pledged $10,000 toward the project.

Mayor Daniel A. Murphy said the town would make up the balance of the project and provide manpower.

The Lions Club plans to pour concrete for the foundation of the bandstand this fall.
