WELLSVILLE — The village hopes to get its hands on some more money to help with building renovations at the Burrous building on North Main Street.

On Monday night, the Village Board voted to approve two resolutions. One was to “endorse” an application for $500,000 in financial assistance through the 2016 Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) under the New York Main Street (NYMS) Downtown Stabilization Program.

“The application proposes funding to assist property owners to complete building renovations to the former 'Burrous Building,' located at 23, 25-33 N. Main St. in downtown,” the resolution approved Monday night read.

“The proposed funding will contribute to community revitalization efforts.”

Another resolution village trustees passed at the meeting was to support the submission of an application to the CFA program under the Empire State Development Capital Grant Program, for a maximum of $1.5 million.

This funding, if awarded, would also go toward building renovations at Burrous.

Both resolutions were passed unanimously.

Also Monday night, the board approved updates to its noise ordinance. The approval of the 2016 ordinance followed a public hearing held June 27.

“It has been determined by the Board of Trustees … that adoption of said proposed local law would not have a significant effect on the environment ...” the village said in the resolution.
