>Block grant application will seek $400,000
SILVER CREEK -- Hanover town leaders hope their second application to the community development block grant program works better than the first.
Supervisor Kathy Tampio said Monday that she will submit an application for $400,000 to be used toward the town's water improvement project. The town's bid for the grant program was rejected in 2005.
At the regular meeting, board members set two dates for public hearings, one on Feb. 27 and a second on March 13, to hear comments on the proposal. The hearings will start at 7:35 on both nights.
Tampio said that if the town receives the funding, it would be used to reline and clean water lines in the hamlet of Irving.
The residential area located in the northeastern corner of the town has potential for development and is currently served by water supplied through the Erie County Water Authority.
