HORNELL, NY – Three resolution went before the Common Council meeting Monday night and were approved.
The first resolution authorized the Mayor to submit a CFA (Consolidated Funding Application) for various sewer repairs throughout the city. CFA was created to streamline and expedite the grant application process. Local Governments use the CFA to access multiple state funding sources through one application, making the process quicker and easier.
The second resolution allowed St Ann’s Academy to retroactively seek tax exempt status. Although they are currently recognized as tax exempt, they were not in their initial move to their new location and are seeking reimbursement for that year from the Hornell City School District. According to the Mayor, they are owed around $4800 that they originally had to pay.
The last was a bond resolution to allow the city to seek $3 million in a grant and $3.8 million in a no interest loan for the water treatment plant renovations. The total cost of the project is comes in around $6,870,000.
