SPRINGVILLE – The Village of Springville Board of Trustees awarded the bid for a new police car to DeLacy during their meeting on Feb. 5.
At the Jan. 2 meeting, Village of Springville Officer in Charge Nick Budney reported that with the two current village police cars being around nine years old and starting to see some issues, Budney proposed a plan to the board about progressively replacing the cars over time and not doing them all at once.
The village recently accepted bids for the purchase of one new 2018 Ford Utility Police Interceptor and after receiving numerous bids, Village Administrator Liz Melock recommended that the board go with DeLacy at the price of $29,285. The board later unanimously voted to go with DeLacy’s bid.
During her report, Melock reminded those in attendance that the general election for the Village of Springville will be held on March 20 from noon - 9 p.m. at the Public Safety Building, 65 Franklin St. Up for election is the mayor for a four year term and two trustees positions each for a four year term.
The first day to file an independent nominating petition was Feb. 6 and must be submitted by Feb. 13 to the village office, 5 W. Main St., during regular business hours.
In their trustee reports, members of the board thanked the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce for their annual awards gala for recognizing people, businesses and organizations that make the village a great place to live.
“I wanted to thank the Chamber for the nice evening … I think it is one of the better things that they do profiling citizens and businesses in the community that contribute to the quality of life here,” Trustee Nils Wikman said.
