Buffalo's City Council approved the Buffalo Police Department to allow other municipalities or organizations to borrow their recently-acquired climbing wall during special events.

Police Chief Jason Carder told the council he has received requests to use the climbing wall and wanted some direction from the council on whether or not to allow the wall to be used, under what guidelines and if and how much the department should charge for loaning it.

Carder said that probably two officers would need to take the wall and operate and oversee it while it was being borrowed, so those expenses would be borne by the city of Buffalo.

Suggestions by the council were to at least charge to cover fuel expenses and the cost of the officers' time, before Mayor Randy Dyess made this suggestion.

Carder also reported 1,315 incidents in the month of June.
Dispatch handled 4,165 total calls.
And Animal Control Officer Karen Kimutis responded to one call in the county, resulting in a $50 charge to Johnson County.
