May 17 - 23, 2018 ~ The Villager ~

Cont. From Cover hand crafted, locally sourced and never frozen. He told the Villager that the only freezer they have in the building is for ice cream. Bursee explained the names of the beer will reflect the neighborhoods of Buffalo. He iterated that those close-knit areas of various nationalities are all a slice of Buffalo but differ in many ways. Growing up in Buffalo, one of his first jobs was shining shoes, working in the bars and meeting many different people. He said, “I was inspired to come up with the cities’ neighborhood names for the beer and I have them copyrighted. Kaisertown will be a German beer, and the First Ward will be an Irish beer, and the tough area surrounded by railroad tracks, Iron Island,


Cont. From Cover Elisa’s spirit,” said coordinator and good friend of Hughey, Gwen Bush. “Last year, we had a great turnout of walkers and runners on a beautiful day.” Because of the generosity of the community, last year’s run raised $10,000, which allowed for two $500 scholarships to be awarded to two high school


Cont. From Cover artists from all over Western New York and even as far as Toronto. It’s always fun to see the different and unique ways that artists create work. The gallery also has a wide variety of handmade and artisan gift items from across the country!” Starting this summer, Gallery


Cont. From Left extra from the Extreme Winter Recovery (NYSDOT) Aid , and approximately $4,000 in revenue from the sale of surplus equipment at recent auction. A public hearing was opened to consider the Zoning Code Amendments as well as the Certificate of Occupancy and Certificate of Zoning Compliance laws. No members of the public appeared to speak on either issue, and the public hearing for them was closed. DPW and Engineering Reports Niles Pierson was representing both the DPW and the Engineering Department at Monday’s meeting. The engineering department is in need of an engineering assistant and Mr. Pierson proposed that the department brings on an engineering student intern for the summer while having Mr. Bob Sharf stay on part-time at 15 hours/ wk until the end of the calendar year, with the expectation that the student intern is to be hired as the full-time engineering assistant after graduation. He also reported that only one bid

will be the IPA.” Todd Harmon, Sales Manager and Bursee explained that they will have a cocktail menu that will be a pre-prohibition set up. These Harmon said were inspired by the new vibes going off in the city in the new cocktail bar rooms. “It’s our way of bringing Buffalo here,” he said “A complete destination for hand crafted beers and cocktails and fresh, never frozen foods.” They will be starting their distilling process in a month or so as their distiller gets it ready for production. They also have a large selection of spirits on hand as well, including over 30 different kinds of bourbon and high-end tequilas. Bursee wanted to indicate that their Orin Swift Abstract wine isn’t well known around here, but our visitors from Cleveland will recognize it. The interior is a mix of industrial and rustic reflecting a mix of the city and our rural area. “The city feel, but

looking deeper one will notice the barn-wood and stone. An urban feel, but also the chalet style look.” Bursee said. They plan on building a large patio out front facing the 219 with fire pits and outdoor grills as well. The idea is to have the chef grilling and to have the patrons served outside also. They have a music line up and plan on having live bands every Thursday and told the Villager there will never be a cover to get in. Their main goal is that they want each guest to have a special night. Make plans to go there on Tuesdays for their family table side buffet. They bring the buffet to your table! The massive two-story restaurant is another great addition to Ellicottville. The building houses the brewery and distillery and there is plenty of parking to boot. Steelbound Brewery & Distillery can be found on Facebook and their website has more information as well (

seniors in the area. The event is free for all runners, but donations will be accepted for the Elisa B. Hughey Scholarship for the Arts. “Two students will be chosen for the scholarship again this year - one from Ellicottville Central School and the other from West Valley Central School - which will aid them in continuing their education in the arts,” Bush added. “In addition to honoring Elisa’s life, our vision is to also raise

money for local art students to assist them with their future endeavors.” Following the run, a fundraiser party complete with a raffle and silent auction will take place. T-shirts will also be available to purchase. Registration for Elisa’s Fun Run for the Arts will begin at 8:30am and the run start time will be 10am.

has been received thus far for the Monroe Street Streetscape Project Update, and the board granted Mr. Pierson permission to award the bid to the lowest responsible bidder. It was agreed that the village is in need of a new street sweeper (the current one is 30+ years old), and that purchasing such was a “top priority” over obtaining new ¾ ton pick-up trucks and a new backhoe. The board passed a motion to place an order for the new street sweeper by June 15 so that they could take advantage of deal that allows the village to purchase a better sweeper at the bargain price of around $195,000 (they typically run around $220k). Mr. Pierson will be looking into the best way to finance this purchase. Parks and Beautification Patra Lowes reported that it is very labor intensive to assemble and take down the ski tree every year, and suggested making it a permanent fixture in the park, complete with a concrete base, uplighting and seating. The board liked this idea and Ms. Lowes will be looking into starting this project. Joe DiPasquale reports that “everything is beautiful” and that in regards to hiring someone to water the flowers/ plants in the village, “the

Alley Katz are hot on Reggie [Klahn]”. The board passed a motion to hire Mr. Klahn. Special Events and Refuse In an “all for everybody” campaign, Spencer Murray proposed that the village consider waiving the open container laws during Jazz and Blues Festival as it will benefit the community, businesses and patrons of the event. After a brief discussion, a motion was passed to waive the OCL throughout the village from 11am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday of Jazz and Blues Festival. Patra Lowes reported that she received only one bid for refuse pick-up in the amount of $61,800/year for three years. A motion was passed to accept said bid. Other Business The board heard a presentation by Good Energy, an energy aggregation service with an established track record that is suggesting the village pass a local law that would allow them to draft a proposal to reduce energy costs for the village. The board also heard a brief presentation from the local BOCES unit about the opportunity for the village to host See “VILLAGE” page 9
