Bradford City Council on Tuesday authorized a lease agreement that will bring Mexican food back to Main Street.
Mauricio Feria-Espana plans to rent 109 Main Street for one year and bring in a new Mexican restaurant.
OECD Executive Director Sara Andrews said Feria-Espana owns a Mexican restaurant in Olean, New York, that, she says, is “bright, cheery clean.”
She says the food was good and service was excellent when she went to the Olean restaurant recently.
“We’ve done our due diligence … and we’re looking forward to having them come into our community and bring back a Mexican restaurant,” Andrews said.
Also Tuesday, council accepted a quote of $7,972 from IA Construction for the paving of the access road to the Callahan Park ice rink and the side lot next to the rink. The money will come from the General Obligation Bond Fund.
Council also authorized the execution of a grant contract for $50,000 in Keystone Communities Program grant money to be used for façade improvement in the city’s Downtown Historic District. DCED deputy secretary Champ Holman announced the grant on Thursday.
Council gave permission to submit an emergency medical service operations fund grant in the amount of $9,100 that will be used to buy new portable EMS radios and automatic external defibrillators for the new fire truck and ambulance.
Council also appointed Stacy Wallace to the Downtown Bradford Revitalization Corporation. She will fill the unexpired term of McKean County Judge Chris Hauser. The term expires in January.
