Members of Wellsville’s Revitalization Committee gathered at the Pete Amato Boardwalk for the inaugural lighting of a newly installed light fixture Tuesday evening. Village Administrator Thom Edgell spearheaded the project getting the donated light fixture installed.
The light was one of three donated to the Village by Wellsville businessman Bill Bower. The other two lights are located along Main Street at Village Hall. Electrical work was done by Sayre Electric. The newly installed light is wired through an electric eye timed with the lights on the Wells Avenue Bridge. Edgell noted the cost of installing the light was shared by the Amato Foundation.
The new light makes an attractive addition to the popular mural viewing area. A floodwall mural dedication ceremony is being planned for September. Artist Gina Hampson is in the process of finishing the last few murals.
