With fewer daylight hours as fall transitions into winter, Hastings Police Chief Jeff Pratt is urging motorists to be vigilant for pedestrians, especially kids, when on the road. At the same time, he suggested pedestrians wear light colored clothes to help them be more easily seen.

 

In his report to the Hastings City Council Monday, Pratt made a few announcements:

* the annual celebration on Halloween night for kids on Green Street will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The street will be blocked off, with a warming tent set up, reserve officers holding a candy check and cadets serving hot chocolate. Officers will be on hand to assist homeowners coming in and out of the area.

 

* The next “Coffee with the Chief” is set for Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Hastings Public Library. The meeting typically draws about 30 citizens and is a “good chance for me to talk with residents,” Pratt said.

 

* The annual 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. parking ban on city streets goes into effect Nov. 1, which Pratt thinks will be a week or so before snow comes. After a short period of warnings, violators risk fines and possible impoundment of vehicles blocking the city’s snow clearing equipment.
