Village approves Carlin’s Catering food truck, Dyke Street Fire Company requests
Michael T. Baldwin Reports
The Village of Wellsville is seeking a $2 million grant so it can demolish six properties. The Village Board Monday night voted unanimously to apply for funding from the RESTORENY program. Mayor Randy Shayler said if the grant is approved, it would “add value to the local housing stock.” A public hearing is tentatively set for September 12 and the formal application would be submitted in October.
The following properties will be demolished if the grant is awarded:
86 Hanover (condemned),63 Seneca (condemned),125 Howard (condemned), 227 Madison, 31 Grover, 172 Earley.
The Village Board also approved an intent to apply for the Downtown Revitalization Initiative and New York Forward grant. Mayor Shayler said that if the application is submitted and funding is approved, it “would improve the Central Business District.” A public hearing is likely to be scheduled for September.
