Celoron Mayor Scott Schrecengost presented a two-phase plan during a special Village Board meeting on Wednesday, which he said would provide access to a water main line from the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities water for residences from 10th Street to Seventh Street in the Butler Ave. area.
The total cost of the project is about $90,000.
Funding for the project comes from $75,000 in funding announced in July by Sen. Cathy Young, although the village has yet to see any of that money. To prevent further delays, officials in Celoron have agreed to use $50,000 out of the village’s fund balance, with reimbursement expected once the state funding arrives.
Phase one will begin as soon as possible and is dependent on the weather, while the second phase will begin in the spring.
A total of 10 households on Butler Ave. and Seventh St. have been lobbing the village to provide clean water after their wells begin providing undrinkable water.
