Buffalo's City Council, at their Tuesday meeting, went into executive session and came back into the general session, deciding to enter into a contract with former City Planner Zach Montgomery as a planning consultant.
The services contract includes a fee to be paid Montgomery not to exceed $9,900.
One-third of that amount will be paid by the economic joint powers board.
Mayor Randy Dyess, after the meeting, said this isn't the first time the city has offered this type of situation to a former employee.
He explains why the council felt the contract was necessary.
Montgomery will not be working on-site at City Hall but by phone and computer.
