HOLLEY – The Holley Police Department is losing two of its full-time police officers to other nearby police departments, leaving Holley with only Police Chief William Murphy as a full-time presence.

Jennifer Lloyd is leaving the Holley PD to work for the Geneva Police Department. Another Holley officer, Devon Pahuta, is headed to the Batavia Police Department.

The Village Board voted on Tuesday to hire two part-time officers to help with staffing the department, which will continue to provide police protection, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The board hired Dominic D’Antonio, effective Feb. 19. He will be paid $15.22 per hour. He is a veteran police officer.

Cory Collins was hired as a part-time officer at $10.50 an hour. He starts Feb. 26.

In other action on Tuesday:

The Village Board voted to waive a $19 late fee for the water bill for the First Presbyterian Church of Holley.

The board voted to pay David Nenni, the DPW superintendent, $792.30 for five unused vacation days.

Village Clerk Jane Murray said the next village election will be June 17. Mayor Kenney and Trustees Don Penna and David Dill are all up for election. The terms are for two years. Candidates can pick up petitions at the Village Office beginning April 1.

The board approved a request from Nenni, the DPW superintendent, to add no parking signs near the West Union and Orchard Street intersection and the Franklin and Ray Street intersection. Board members said vehicles have been parked near those intersections, making it difficult for the DPW to plow.
