GOWANDA – The ambulance building located behind Village Hall in Gowanda needs some electrical work done.

The maintenance needs includes replacing two exit signs and a bathroom light. Outlets in the garage must also be replaced and upgraded to GFCI outlets. The total for the five electrical items to be fixed will be $378. The village board approved to fix the items. The board also had a request from Gowanda Police Officer in Charge Joseph Alessi for the garage door to be fixed. One bay in the garage is not working.

“I suggest we replace this if its broken,” Trustee Carol Sheibley said.

The board approved Pinevalley Overhead Doors in South Dayton to do the repairs for an estimated price of between $605 and $630 depending on installation and labor costs. The price will also come with a one year warranty.

In other business, the board announced that village elections will be on March 19, 2013. The positions available will be mayor and two trustees. All elected will serve a two year term. It was announced that over 60 children and teens signed up for the village skiing program.
