SPRINGVILLE — The village of Springville board of trustees approved the lease payments for the Springville Volunteer Fire Department garage on West Main Street at $946 per month, valid through May 2017. The lease payment is based on capital improvements, repairs and maintenance to the portion of the building that houses the trucks and equipment owned by the village. The approved lease payment is less than the current lease payment.
The board approved an intermunicipal water sales agreement with the town of Concord, for Cattaraugus Street residents living outside the village borders. The agreement permits the legal sale of village water to an approved water district, to update a 1940s water agreement with the Springville Field and Stream.
Trustee Nils Wikman presented a draft of a transient sales law for the trustees to review.
Mayor William Krebs spoke to the board on the Master Plan update project.
“Over the years, the village has seen much private investment and public infrastructure improvements,” Krebs said. “Recent investment of private funds, the New York Main Program and the Regional Economic Development Council awards have shown us that Springville is indeed growing.
“Working together, we will continue to enhance our village, as the vibrant residential, commercial, financial, medical and cultural center in southern Erie County,” he concluded.
A Master Plan workshop is scheduled for Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. in the village court, located at 65 Franklin St.
“At the workshop, residents will share their ideas about the future development of Springville, in the areas of the environment, economic development, residential development, parks, recreation, community service, transportation, infrastructure, historic preservation and village street design,” Krebs explained.
A survey will also be available for the public, online and at the village office on Jan. 6. The survey will ask residents about future land use and development.
The board approved a resolution to dispense with the special election requirement related to the annexation of 14063 South Cascade Drive from the town of Concord into the village of Springville. The board dispensed with the required special election because there is only one tenant and the property is owned by a corporation, Roloc Corporation.
Jan. 21 was designated for the public hearing about the local law, regarding the annexation.The next Springville village board meeting will be on Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. in the village municipal building, located at 65 Franklin St. in Springville.
