At their meeting this week, the Buffalo City Council discussed a number of topics with City/County Engineer Wayne Hill, including the possibility of adding a secondary access into the Greenleaf Subdivision.
The city has been trying to find a way to get another access there for a number of years to help in evacuations in the event of an emergency incident in the area. The roadway will possibly come through the Buffalo Commerce Center, According to Hill.
On a related note, drainage issues in the subdivision will hopefully be alleviated with a proposed storm drain pipe that Hill is looking into running adjacent to an existing city-owned sewer line in an easement through Deer Park Campground.
The high-pressure water supply line to the schools is in the ground, he said, and a leak that was losing 400 gallons of water per day was located and repaired. Milling and paving of adjacent streets is expected to begin this week and construction of Conrad Street into the school site has begun. Tree removal is done and digging of the foundation for the retaining wall has started with construction of the wall itself slated for next week.
