On Tuesday night, Hellertown Borough Council unanimously approved a motion that paves the way for the removal of a two-hour parking zone on Linden Avenue.
Council approved the motion after borough Public Works Director Tom Henshaw reported that maintaining the currently restricted area "makes no sense at all."
The restricted zone is in front of a private residence and where "the old Andy's Flower Shop was," Henshaw explained.
Councilman Tom Rieger asked that Henshaw and public works employees take note of any other antiquated parking zones in the borough, so that they too may be considered for updating when council votes to formalize the Linden Avenue change with an amendment to its parking ordinance.
At the meeting, Henshaw and the public works department were also praised for their response to the snowstorm that occurred earlier this month.
"The roads were clean," council vice president John Bate said. "I would just like to compliment you guys."
Henshaw said the road crew "had really good cooperation with the residents and the police department" during the snow emergency that was declared.
"We were out from 8pm to 6am, so it was a pretty long night," he added.
