Security cameras, WPD SRO approval, a new pickup truck for Public Works
Michael T. Baldwin Reports
The Wellsville Village Board Monday evening authorized the Department of Public Works (DPW) to install multiple security cameras on the outside and inside of the Main Street Fire Station. The cameras were included in the current budget and have become necessary after property was stolen from a volunteer firefighters pickup truck parked in the fire lot during an alarm. The DPW will also assist both the ambulance corps and police department with pavement issues between the respective parking lots and South Main Street.
The Village also gave the okay for the police department to supply a School Resource Officer(SRO) to the school district. The new deal was approved by the school October 4th and by the village in a 4-0 vote Monday. In other village business:
- The Board approved spending up to $50,000 for a new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck for the DPW.
- Trustee’s accepted, with regret, the resignation of part-time police officer James Cady. He was relocated out-of-state and is now a reservist and is working with the military.
- Leaf collection has begun in the Village of Wellsville. Residents are reminded to rake to the area between the sidewalk and curb. The collection will include multiple cycles until the majority have been collected.
- The Village Board will also consider new signage at its facility at 23 North Main Street to better identify the municipal building.
