The Buffalo City Council, at their last meeting, heard an update from City Building Inspector Toby Rhoades on the City-wide Spring Cleanup.
Rhoades said the city issued 140 vouchers during the cleanup, as compared to 121 last year. Although he didn't have specific numbers as far as loads or tonnage of trash taken during the cleanup, he said the weather was good and he believes there was a better than usual turnout.
Two new home permits were issued by his office in May, and 15 total permits ranging from remodels to the new home permits were issued.
City Attorney Ben Kirven reported that he and Animal Control Officer Karen Kimutis will be working on a comprehensive revision to the animal codes. She is “spearheading” the revision, he said, and he hopes to have a rough draft available in the next few weeks for the council to review.
Kirven also reported that he has secured another easement on the NW Water Line Project, leaving just one left to be secured, which WWC Engineering is working to secure.
