Reminder: Cars Left On Village Streets

Overnight In Snowstorm Will Be Towed

COOPERSTOWN – Beginning with the next major snowstorm, the Village of Cooperstown will begin towing cars that are left on the streets overnight, Police Chief Frank Cavalieri announced today.

Overnight parking during storms has always been prohibited, but not enforcing the law became a particular challenge after the 29-inch snowfall on Dec. 17, when a few cars remained buried under snowbanks on streets for several days, he said.

Department Small, Says New Chief,

But Big-City Complexities Exist Here

COOPERSTOWN – At his first public appearance since being named yesterday to lead the Village Police Department, Chief Frank Cavilieri this evening made it seem simple.

The most problematic area of policing, here as everywhere, is “use of force,” Cavilieri said this evening at the first meeting of the Police Community Advisory Board.  A related issue is “how we interact with the community.”

The good news, he continued, is that there is very little crime in Cooperstown.  He described a typical month as two motor vehicle incidents, two calls, three dogs barking and two instances of criminal mischief.

But as the discussion continued between Cavilieri, Senior Patrolman Jim Kelman and six members of the CAB, brought together here and in 513 communities across the state by Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202, the complexities multiplied.
