Kane plans to revise handicapped parking rules

May 14, 2012

The Kane Borough Council plans to revise its rules for handicapped parking spaces in residential areas.
Council last month voted to eliminate reserved parking for handicapped on residential streets.
But council voted 6-0 Monday to initiate action to revise its ordinance covering residential handicap parking spaces.
Council President Howard Kane joined with Councilwomen Janet Bard and Holly Harris and Councilmen Dennis Drost, Harold Hallberg and John Gentilman to approve the "first reading" of the ordinance. Councilman Bill Tunall did not attend the meeting.

Hamlin plans for work on Marvindale Road

May 14, 2012

HAZEL HURST – The Hamlin Township Board of Supervisors agreed Monday to work on Marvindale Road.
At this point, however, the supervisors aren't sure exactly how much work will be done. The cost will determine the scope of the project.
One plan calls for work on a 7,310-foot section. Another option calls for work on the total length of the road at the eastern end of the township.
Both options call for "milling" the existing roadway, grading and rolling the "millings" for a new surface.
