SPRINGVILLE — The Springville village elections held March 18 garnered some close calls, with Springville Mayor William Krebs winning a second term with 396 votes, incumbent trustee Terry Skelton winning another term with 284 votes and newcomer Robert Moriarty winning the other seat, with 258 votes.
Krebs' challenger, Thomas Czechowski, received 117 votes. Also running for trustee were Samantha Skura, with 253; Robert Laskowski, with 217 and Deborah McClellan, with 27.
Voters also approved a proposition to increase the number of years volunteer firefighters can earn credits in the awards program, which went from 20 years-30 years. The vote was 338-116. Currently, firefighters can earn credits over 20 years, for a pension of $400 a month.
Under the increased credit program, which will go into effect next year, a firefighter could earn a pension of up to $600 a month.
