The City of Hancock has set the dates for its annual spring cleanup.
City residents may drop a wide variety of unwanted items off at the Public Works Garage on Tomasi Drive on May 13th between 8:30 and 6:30, and May 14th between 8:00 and 3:00. You can see a list of what will and will not be accepted at the bottom of this post.
Senior citizens and handicapped residents can arrange to have their trash picked up by calling city hall. Pickups will take place on May 16th, 23rd, or June 6th.
At last night’s meeting, Hancock council members learned that the city is down a police officer. After 21 years, Jeremy Lassila has left the force to join the Keweenaw County Sheriff’s Department.
The city is beginning a project to mark historic sites. City Manager Mary Babcock and Councilman John Haeussler worked with Steve Walton to apply for an historic signage grant through the Keweenaw Convention and Visitors Bureau. They’ll start with eight significant locations, and hope to add more later.
Several popular summer activities will return to Hancock. The schedules for the Canal Rock concerts at Porvoo Park and Movies on the Green have been released. They’ll be posted soon on our KeweenawReport.com Community Calendar. The Tori and Farmers Market will take place on Thursdays at Quincy Green from 3:00 until 6:00, beginning June 23rd.
