Today Mayor Michael Helfrich announces additional proactive efforts to promote social distancing and to promote public health practices in the City of York for Coronavirus mitigation.
To provide access to essential services in our downtown core we will continue to enforce meter parking in the Market District. All other meter enforcement in the city is suspended. The purpose of meter enforcement in these designated areas is to allow for resource users to access essential business operations for our healthcare facilities, pharmacies, banks, etc.
In an effort to protect the wellbeing of our local fauna, the City of York has installed temporary fencing amongst the trees at Kiwanis Lake to close off areas of the rookery during nesting season for the Egrets and Black Crowned Herons. The fences are designed to keep the birds protected during this time. During the duration of this temporary fencing, no mowing and/or trimming will be performed by city staff in those areas to reduce any additional stress on the birds. Allowing the grass to grow will also provide shelter to the fledglings when they fall out of the nests.
On Thursday March 05, 2020 at 0802 hours, the City of York Department of Fire/Rescue Services was dispatched to 608 South Pershing Avenue for a structure fire w/entrapment.
