HOLLEY – The Village Board is extending the 2-hour parking limit in the Public Square. Motorists were limited to no more than two consecutive hours in the Public Square from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Board members held a public hearing on Tuesday evening on the change. No one spoke against allowing people to park up to two hours in the Public Square until 9 p.m.

Mayor Kevin Lynch said Holley village officials were asked by businesses to extend the 2-hour parking.

Village Attorney John Sansone will send the local law to the Secretary of State to be certified. Once the village receives notice from the notice, the law will go into effect.

The Village DPW also will put up new signs with the later hours for the 2-hour parking. The new law doesn’t include Sundays and holidays.

In other action, the Village Board also accepted the construction bid of $80,915 from Watson Enterprises to install new sidewalks, curbs and aprons on East Albion Street. This street wasn’t included in the recent sidewalk improvement project in the village.

People will soon be able to legally park longer in the Public Square for up to 2 hours. The Village Board said the later times were in response to a request from businesses in the Square.
