At Tuesday's city council meeting, Buffalo Mayor Randy Dyess suggested to City Planner Zach Montgomery that the city look into adorning the new band shell building in Crazy Woman Square with a plaque commemorating the firefighters and pilots that slurry bombed downtown in 1988 that saved the rest of the buildings from the arson fire that demolished the buildings where the square stands today.
Also this week, Montgomery gave an update on construction projects, including the square, to the county commission.
Montgomery said the Crazy Woman Square project has had two change orders due to unforseen underground issues which have since been resolved, but is still under budget. The project will be completed by December 15th of this year.
The Sports Fields Complex project is going well, he said, and should be 90 to 95% complete by December 15th, and be usable in the spring of 2013. The project is slightly over budget, he said.
The SW Quadrant water line project is going well. The Conrad/Walters Street project is proceeding but costs have come in higher than the engineer's estimate due mainly to a retaining wall that has been determined as necessary for the road into the new Cloud Peak School.
