At their last meeting the Buffalo City Council approved the Emergency Response Plan (ERP) as drafted and presented by Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connolly.
Mayor Randy Dyess explained more about the ERP.
On a related matter, Connolly asked if the city had an action plan in place in case of a breach or failure at Tie Hack Dam, which the city does have. Updated contact names and numbers will be forwarded to Connolly to be on file at Emergency Management.
The council also approved the city's insurance policy renewal for 2013 with a few changes from 2012.
Trevor Moon, with North Wyoming Insurance, told the council that new assets such as the city-owned buildings at Crazy Woman Square and at the new Sports Fields Complex have been added to their coverage, bringing the total blanket coverage for the city to just under $28 million. Coverage for terrorism, which the city had last year, was discussed and was determined as unnecessary. With the changes, the city's policy premium increased from $68,000 to $69,804.
Resolution No. 1350 was approved, officially adopting the individual changes to city code over the last few weeks. The Resolution adopts the 2012 ICC Building Codes Standards.
