Former Hornell Courthouse Headed to Auction:

 

Monday the Steuben County Legislature decided that the former county courthouse building at 12 Allen Street in Hornell will soon be headed to the auction block.  The property served as the courthouse until 1980 when all proceedings were moved to the Hornell City Hall.  It was then home to the Department of Motor Vehicles until it moved in September of last year.  The building is expected to be sold in its own stand-alone auction on a date not yet determined.  It’s full assessed market value is $432,900.

 

 

Lindley Supports Hard Working Road Crews:

 

Lindley took the brunt of the storm that rolled through the area Friday night and road crews have been on the job since Saturday morning, day and night, working to making roads passable again.  In support of them and all they’re doing, the community has stepped up to help with donations of food for lunches for all the town, county, and state Department of Transportation workers.  Local churches and businesses have cooked and donated pizza, sandwiches, Sloppy Joe’s, and more since the storm rolled through and according to volunteers, some 40 workers have been fed every day.  Donations are being put together by the Lindley Community Church and the Presho United Methodist Church for anyone wishing to lend a hand.
