Angola Town Board approves Community Block Grant projects

The Angola Village Board of Trustees held a public hearing on Oct. 21, to provide residents with the opportunity to offer ideas and insight into community development and housing projects for potential funding by the Federal Community Development Grant programs. These funds are intended to benefit low and moderate-income residents in the village.

The board then approved a proposal to apply for CDBG funds. The requested funds will be utilized for the following projects, in the order listed: Grove Street waterline replacement project from Washington to Prospect streets; South Creek/John K. Thompson pool ADA improvement project and Rural/Transit van service.

In other board news:

– The board also approved a resolution directing the village clerk to publish a “notice of unpaid taxes.” Any village property taxes not paid by Nov. 1 will be forwarded to the Erie County Department of Taxation and Finance, for collection.

– Village residents who had delinquent water accounts faced water shutoff, unless their water bills were fully paid by Oct. 28. Residents would have been previously notified for accounts two months overdue. The total amount of unpaid water bills to the village totalled approximately $9,256, at the time of the board meeting.
