Springville Journal
Colleen Mahoney

Colleen Mahoney has been the editor of the Springville Journal since 2014.  Although she is a transplant to the area, Mahoney has embraced Springville life and all it has to offer. Mahoney feels everyone has a story to tell, and loves to be the one who tells it. “I love to write, but I also love meeting new people and sharing their stories,” she said.

She reports on most town, village and school board meetings and many community events. Her favorite Chamber event is the summer Scavenger Hunt. Her hobbies include camping, hiking, kayaking, running and visiting craft breweries. As a life lesson to share, Mahoney says, “Just be happy.”

Bill Krebs

William Krebs retired from a career as a high school English teacher, and has been honored by the New York State English Council as a Teacher of Excellence. He has 25 years of experience in village government.

Krebs represents the Village of Springville at Chamber meetings. “The Village strives to build a close partnership with the local business community,” he said. “Village representatives must participate in community and business development.” The Village’s $9 million budget includes a general fund, water fund, sewer fund and electric fund, representing an array of essential services for local residents and businesses.

Krebs’s favorite Chamber event is the Oktoberfest. It is traditional for the Mayor to tap the first keg. Krebs enthusiastically participates in this custom in Springville.
