The City of Buffalo meets this evening and Johnson County News Director for Sheridan Media, Aaron Palmer, brings us a preview.
At their regular meeting Tuesday, the Buffalo City Council will present for second reading Ordinance No. 1345, which will outlaw the possession, sale, purchase or offering for sale certain intoxicating substances.
The substances, sometimes called “Spice” or synthetic marijuana, have made a number of kids in Wyoming sick.
The council has taken a very active role in dealing with the dangerous substance.
City Councilman Randy Dyess was responsible for bringing the problem to the attention of the council. He said the Ordinance shows that city leaders can cooperate and get things done.
The Sheridan City Council has also looked into banning the substance in that city as well, and Dyess said the more cities and towns that pass these types of Ordinances, the better chance the State will eventually outlaw the substances.
In other council business, the city will look into liquor license renewals, will get an update from States West Engineer Brook Stromer on the status of the new wastewater treatment plant, will hear a presentation on Northeast Wyoming Regional Projects, and will consider a request for approval to accept a grant award from Homeland Security.
The council will also adjourn into executive session to discuss a personnel matter.
Finally, the department heads will present their reports to the council to wrap up the meeting.
The City Council meeting will begin at 4pm Tuesday at City Hall in Buffalo.
