At their regular meeting this week, the Buffalo City Council approved a request from the Buffalo Police Department to apply for a grant for alcohol and tobacco compliance checks of local retailers.
Mayor Randy Dyess explains further.
The grant, from the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police (WASCOP), will fund compliance checks when performed on area retailers to make sure they aren't selling tobacco or alcohol to underage buyers.
The $3,400 grant is renewed yearly.
Notes from the meeting: City Building Inspector Toby Rhoades reported that building permits this year are ahead of last year by roughly 2 to 1, with most going to contractors, not private homeowners.
City Attorney Ben Kirven said the next project he will be focusing on is easements in the Greenleaf Subdivision in preparation of relieving storm water drainage issues there.
City Works Director Les Hook told the council he has been contacted by the State Board of Control and the city can now begin storing water again in Tie Hack Reservoir.
