The City of Buffalo's raw water line, which supplies irrigation water to the golf course, parks and other areas of the city has had breaks in the line for years, but this summer has had more breaks in a different area than usual, which has prompted discussions to replace it.

Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder gave his report to the city council at their meeting last week, saying the department had responded to 1,223 incidents during July. Of those, seven were child abuse or neglect cases.

(Sunday, September 9 @ 3pm) Evelyn Morgan, with the Gilead Fire Incident Management Team, released the latest information on the fire this afternoon.

The public meeting on the Gilead Fire held in Buffalo Saturday evening drew about 50 concerned citizens who wanted to be updated on the current fire situation and to ask questions of those in charge of fighting the fire.

The update from the Incident Management Team on the Gilead Fire was early Sunday morning, and as of 6am the fire is at 5,720 acres and 40% contained.
The change in acreage for the fire is again due to better mapping, according to the release.
