Honesdale council postpones traffic pattern decision
In other council matters, a letter from Wayne County District Attorney Janine Edwards exonerated former zoning officer Wayne Early, who was accused by a council member of criminal action in his zoning decision regarding the former Honesdale Emergency Ambulance Corps’ building.
The council officially adopted the 2013 budget that will establish a 5.8 mils total.
The council voted to select 17 borough streets that would become snow emergency routes. The provision will go into effect after the meeting on January 14, 2013. A snow emergency can be called only by Mayor Ed Langendoerfer. During that emergency, residents can park on any other street. “After the January meeting, the ban on overnight parking will be lifted except for those 17 streets during a snow emergency,” said council member James Brennan, chairman of the Streets Committee.
The borough will erect signs designating which streets will be the snow emergency route.
