At their last meeting the Buffalo City Council heard reports from their department heads, updating them on what they were currently working on.
City Attorney Ben Kirven said he has been working on the franchise agreement with Optimum Cable and expects to begin the three readings for the Ordinance at the January 15th meeting.
He also reported that the cable company wants to provide the equipment necessary for the city to run it's own access channel on the cable system and that he will be discussing the subject further with Optimum representatives.
City Works Director Les Hook said the contractor was finishing up the 18-inch water line project west of town, securing and sealing the pipeline and cleaning and flushing the system in preparation of adding the pipeline to the city's infrastructure.
City crews, he said, are continuing to work at the waste water treatment plant reclaiming ponds from the old facility.
City/County Engineer Wayne Hill said the contractor on the Crazy Woman Square project has installed lights along the creek, and is ordering parts from the manufacturer to deal with a leakage issue in the flushing mechanisms in the toilets in the restrooms.
The Sports Fields Complex will have the backstops installed, fabric in the fencing and similar work done during the month of January, he said. Once the transformer is installed by Rocky Mountain Power, the inside finish work will be completed on the concessions/crows nest building.
Finally, Hill said his focus during the winter months will be on GIS/Mapping projects.
