The Buffalo City Council approved a request from Habitat For Humanity to waive a portion of the water and sewer tap fees for a home they will be building in the Greenleaf Subdivision.
City Building Inspector Toby Rhoades made the request on behalf of Habitat.
Also discussed was a drainage issue with a previous Habitat house. Rhoades explained to the council what the problem was and the council discussed options concerning the house.
Councilman Stan Lakin, who serves on the Habitat For Humanity Board, said he would bring the issue up for discussion at their next meeting.
Ownership of the home will need to be determined and also who is ultimately responsible for the drainage issue.
The council approved the request to waive half of the tap fees and the building permit fee for the current Habitat Home Project.
