GOWANDA - The Gowanda Fire Department will be receiving some new equipment as its purchase was approved at a recent board meeting.
The fire department is in need of new air bottles due to previous ones being taken out of service. The board voted to replace five of seven air bottles taken out of commission for not meeting fire regulations. The board approved spending $830 on the purchase.
The board also announced ski registrations will be in the board conference room in the village hall on Oct. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. The price has increased $5 from last year.

The board approved the following bids: Wendl for $7,500 for chlorine feed system modifications, Richard Hedges for $400 for a 1999 Chevrolet and Matt Smuda for $415 for a GMC dump body. Both the Chevrolet and GMC vehicles were considered surplus by the village.
A matter of not having a street light on North Chapel Street was also brought to the board's attention.
Currently, there is no light on North Chapel Street causing the street to be dark between North Water and College streets. While there is no street light, there is a utility pole. The village will look into possibly getting a street light placed on this existing pole.
