WPD dominates meeting, village welcomes Casey Stuck
Michael T. Baldwin Reports
The Wellsville police department’s Live Scan fingerprint system is in critical condition. Police Chief Tim O’Grady told the village board Monday evening the equipment was no longer functioning. He confirmed, however, that arrests have been continuing. The current unit was purchased in 2014 but service is no longer available. A replacement will cost around $25,000 and O’Grady said he is researching funding sources.
The Board also voted 5-0 to hire Casey Stuck as a full-time Electric Line Helper. He was one of four people interviewed for the job. In other business:
-Two police officers were commended for recent acts of public service. One officer helped a motorist change a tire while another assisted an out-of-towner with overnight lodging arrangements.
-It was noted that in late September, repairs for a leaking roof will be made at both the police station and the Main Street fire station.
-DPW Director Dean Arnold told the Board his crews have been busy working on two major projects, one included replacing transformers and primary electric lines at Brookhaven Apartments on Trapping Brook Road.
The meeting lasted just 26 minutes.
