Buffalo City Attorney Ben Kirven reported to the city council last week that easements for the water transmission line project that he has been working on for quite some time have finally been secured.
He has sent the agreements to the state and they have approved the project to go forward. The city is awaiting some final tweaks from the city's engineering firm on the project and it will then go out to bid.
The project will build another water transmission line from the water treatment plant west of town along Highway 16 into Buffalo.
Kirven said he has begun the process of securing the easement for Burton Street for the new O'Reilly Auto Parts to be built on East Hart Street.
Finally, the Snider Ditch #2 project has been handed to the new city/county engineer who will work to protect the city's water rights, if any, and secure the city's and other party's legal interests in the ditch in preparation of filling in or culverting the ditch from the Burton Property to Clear Creek.
