Wellsville Police Officer to resign

The Wellsville Village Board Monday night accepted the resignation of patrol officer Jacob Klock, effective March 27. Mayor Judy Lynch said police chief Timothy O'Grady would fill the slot with part time officers until a replacement is hired.
Also at the village board meeting, Trustee's accepted the resignation of village worker Wayne Stonemetz.
The Village Board Monday night also approved a local law regulating outdoor burning. The law would prohibit outside burning between midnight and 8 a.m. Trustee Jamie Herman voted against the measure, saying he wasn't sure the board had enough public feedback. Board member Dawn Ketchner said the village conducted and public hearing. "People had their chance," she said.
