After several months of discussion, as well as a public hearing regarding the capital needs of the Wellsville Fire Department, the City Council has approved a $3.00 increase to our utility bills. This charge, which will be known as the “Fire Capital Fee” and will go into effect as of October 1, 2011, will first show on the utility billing in early November. The monthly fee will be earmarked for use in purchasing and updating emergency equipment and supplies.
