The village of Wellsville board used an executive session on Monday to discuss personnel changes in three departments that could result in savings for the next fiscal year.
During the public session, food, exercise and a decorative scare were all approved for permits.
The Dyke Street Engine company and the Wellsville Volunteer Fire Company were approved to have a joint chicken barbecue on Saturday, Oct. 24 from noon to 2 p.m. The tickets are $10 pre-sale and are served or picked up at the engine company on East Hanover Street.
Fire department members are selling the tickets.
A special events permit was also given to the Allegany Arc to hold a 5K run and walk and also a raffle this Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
The Arc is asking everyone to sign up online by Wednesday afternoon at runsignup.com and you can click the race.
Arc officials said there are no divisions as everyone is equal. Your bib is your raffle ticket – prizes will be randomly attached to finish line crosses. If you finish in the designated prize slots, you win. (My knees approve of this competition).
Proceeds for the Friends of Allegany Arc’s 5k Raffle Run/Walk will support people with disabilities in Allegany County. The course starts at The Arc Allegany-Steuben and winds through the streets of Wellsville, ending back at The Arc Allegany- Steuben.
Event parking is at the old Pfunter Sales and Service on 106 Railroad Ave and shuttle busses are available to the start line and back. Contact Myriah Perry ([email protected] or 607-622-1893) for more information.
The Wellsville Area Chamber of Commerce will hold a scarecrow competition from Oct. 8 to Nov. 11, also approved by the village. Any individual or business can sign up to sponsor a pole and decorate it on Main Street.
The chamber office is open during the week at 114 North Main from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or call 585-593-5080.
