Fiss’ Tix Summer Program

The Carlisle Police Department has started our Fiss Tix program for the summer! While out on patrol, our officers will be on the lookout for children exhibiting good bike riding behavior by wearing their helmets, looking both ways before crossing the street and using hand signals. If “caught” violators will get a “ticket” for a FREE ice cream cone at Fiss! Be sure to put the child’s name and a phone number on the back of the ticket when you redeem it. At the end of the season we will draw a winner to receive a voucher for a new bicycle!

The police department would like to thank Fiss’ for their continued support of this great program and we hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable riding season.

When the ordnance goes into effect, no person shall park, abandon or leave any unattended vehicles on any public street or alleyway during the snow emergency parking ban, unless it is an exempt street (see below).  A snow emergency park ban shall be declared when:

Once the snow emergency parking ban has been issued, it shall continue for a period to include 24 hours after it was placed into effect or is lengthened upon proclamation by the Chief of Police. Individuals may park on the streets once the snow is completely removed or plowed from the street or alley and the snow has ceased to fall and the blowing of the wind has stopped.

The following streets are exempt EXCEPT there is no parking during the hours of 11:00pm to 6:00am. Those areas are: 1st Street from Highway 5 to Main Street, School Street from 2nd Street to the rail road tracks, and Garfield Street from  School Street to Main Street.snow 2
