In a joint project between the city and county, engineering cost estimates will be done for a proposed infrastructure upgrade in the Southwest Quadrant of the city.
City Works Director Les Hook told the city council at their last meeting that there needs to be an engineering estimate done for a grant application to the State Lands and Investment Board, or SLIB, for a 50/50 grant to complete the project.
Buffalo Mayor Randy Dyess explained how the project came about.
The engineering estimate was scheduled to be completed last week, to keep within the time allowed for the grant application to SLIB.
The project will, if funding is approved, re-surface Klondike Road, replace the water line there from Walter to Sesame Streets, replace the sewer line, put in curb and gutter on Cemetery Road and Sesame Street, and improve pavement on South Burritt Street near the schools. The engineer's estimate was approved, but not to exceed $8,000 in costs. The grant application must be in the SLIB office in Cheyenne in September for consideration for funding at the next SLIB meeting in January, 2012.
