Buffalo City Council Passes 'Spice' Ordinance

Buffalo City Council Passes 'Spice' Ordinance

Aaron Palmer brings us this report from the Buffalo City Council.


The Buffalo City Council at their meeting Tuesday night, passed on third and final reading Ordinance No. 1345, which bans a number of intoxicating chemical compounds commonly known as “Spice,” and other names.

The ordinance was passed with one change from second reading, and City Attorney Ben Kirven explains.

The city also passed a resolution to send to the state legislature to urge them to ban these chemical compounds at the state level.

In other council business, Laura DeMatteis requested the city allow her to build a retaining fence on city land in Mosier Gulch to help control her yaks. Her property runs adjacent to city property but is on a hillside where it would be difficult to construct a fence. She would like to build a fence on city property where there land is flatter and would be easier to erect a fence. The city will look into the legalities and readdress this later.

The city got an update from Brook Stromer with States West Engineering on the wastewater treatment plant, and the city approved a change in the final completion date of the project from this month to Feb. 1, 2011.

More work on the biology of the plant has forced the engineers to push back the completion date, which may come sooner, Stromer said.
