HORNELL, NY – After deciding to return Red Raider Drive to two way traffic, the Hornell Board of Public Safety thought it would be a good idea to designate Adsit Street a school zone due to the increase in school bus traffic it will see. Police Chief Ted Murray said to expect signs to designate in the near future.
In other school news, the Hornell School District has requested the use of the HPD’s K9 unit for random, routine patrols in the school. In order to compensate the police dept., the school district has upped compensation for the resource officer from $50,000 to $55,000.
Immediately following this morning’s meeting and executive session was held to interview potential police officer candidates to fill the vacant position left by retiring officer Paul Crowe. Seth Blanchard has already been hired to fill the position left by retired officer Jim Ciancaglini. Both officers will be required to attend the Police Academy. Mayor Hogan also noted that there will be several positions coming up in the Hornell Fire Dept. that need to be filled.
And finally the Mayor wanted everyone to make sure they come out and see the Maple City Drum & Bugle Corps this Saturday starting 7pm at the high school stadium. According to Hogan, there will be six drum corps, including the Buffalo Bills Drummers, LB Percussion, and our own Intermediate Drumline State Champions. Gates will open at 6pm and the cost at the gates will be $10.
