Civic Auditorium

The Hanford City Council meets inside the Hanford Civic Auditorium.

HANFORD — Hanford City Council met Tuesday night adopted an ordinance that will allow the police to impound any bike not secured in the designated bicycle parking racks at Civic Center Park.

Hanford Police Chief Parker Sever said he has received several complaints about bikes strewn about the park and that they are “getting to be an ongoing issue.”

Sever said people have been tethering their bikes all over the park onto things like poles, traffic signs or signals, trash cans, benches, handrails and especially the fence around the Bastille.
