Buffalo

The City of Buffalo will be hosting two public workshops this week to gather input from the public to help determine the best use of the old Clear Creek School building.

A full scale HAZMAT/Emergency Management drill will be happening Saturday morning in Buffalo, so residents need to be aware of the exercise and understand it is only a drill.

Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connolly describes what the emergency will be based on.

Scott Pehringer, Johnson County Road and Bridge Supervisor, is advising the public that the Canal Road Bridge Replacement Project has been delayed due to weather this spring.
It will be necessary to extend the closure of the Canal Road Bridge until Friday, May 17th.

At their last meeting the Buffalo City Council heard a short presentation from Bob Snowden with the One Percent committee, giving their recommendations for funding to the various groups that applied for funding over the next two fiscal years.

Physician recruiting has been an ongoing issue for the Johnson County Healthcare Center for many months, but the latest information from Hospital Administrator Sandy Ward to the Board of Trustees is finally optimistic if still guarded.

Art In Bloom, the annual fundraiser for the Johnson County Library, is in its last week, so now is the time to check out the decorated flower pots, bid on them and help raise money for your local library.

At their last meeting the Buffalo City Council Passed on first reading Ordinance No. 1362, which will lift the moratorium on municipal water sales to those outside the city limits.

City Attorney Ben Kirven explains the Ordinance further.

A survey done back in 2008 for the Johnson County Healthcare Center has since been discovered to be in error and is the cause for the proposed
new nursing home facility in the 2018 Building Project to not fit in the allocated space for it in the building plans.
