Hornell Common Council Approves 5 Resolutions Monday Night

June 17th, 2019

HORNELL, NY – Monday evening the Hornell Common Council authorized the City of Hornell to pay in the 100% of the federal and non-federal share of the cost of Design and Right of Way Incidentals and Acquisition work for the Canisteo Bridge Project.

The Bridge Replacement on Canisteo Street over Crosby Creek, is eligible for funding of 80% Federal funds and 20% non-federal funds. The city has made available $453,000 to cover their cost of the Project. If the city’s share exceeds that amount, the Common Council will meet as soon as possible to provide the excess amount immediately.

The city also granted Code Enforcement officers Bud Burdette and Larry Bacon the power to enforce all rules and regulations created by the newly established “Tree Board” in the city. The board was created because Hornell has the status of an Arbor City.

Tree Boards are created to study, investigate, counsel, develop, update annually and administer a written plan for carrying out the planting, removal, maintenance and protection of all trees and shrubs on public areas.

The Council also approved Melissa Logan as Marriage Officer and Deputy Registrar of Vital Statistics for a 2 year term starting July 1st, 2019.

Lastly, the Common Council approved the re-appointment of Norm Ellis to the Hornell Public Library Board of Directors for a three-year term to begin Feb. 1, 2019.
