 Buffalo Council Approves Water, Sewer Taps

Buffalo's City Council had a request before them at this week's meeting to allow a county resident to tap into city water and sewer lines to get service to his property.

City Works Director Les Hook made the request for Kade Caturia, who was present at the beginning of the meeting but had to leave for a prior engagement.

Councilman Stan Lakin was in favor of allowing the taps but at the normal double tap fee and double monthly service fee paid by county residents that tie in to city water lines.

Mayor Randy Dyess thought the city could not charge double tap fees or monthly service fees on sewer lines.

The council approved the water line and sewer line taps but at the double rate for the water tap, and the regular rate for the sewer tap.
The monthly service for water will be double the city resident rate and the sewer monthly rate will be the same as city residents pay.
