City Of Buffalo Will Look Into Landowner Complaint

A landowner west of Buffalo approached the Buffalo City Council at Tuesday's meeting to voice her displeasure with the condition of her property stemming from the city's water transmission line project along Highway 16 West.

Beverly Chaffee, owner of the BigHorn Mountains Campground, is not pleased with the work performed by Barnum Construction, who was hired by States West Engineering to install the secondary water line into the city.
Chaffee claims problems on her property including drainage issues, spots where grass will not grow, ruts in her roads and other problems she claims are a direct result of the work performed on her property for the city's water line.

Mayor Randy Dyess with the blessing from the council, advised City Works Director Les Hook to contact States West Engineering as well as Barnum Construction and investigate the issue. He wants to what exactly what issues are there, why they haven't been addressed and how and when they will be fixed, and report back to the council.

The Mayor wrapped up the discussion by saying “the city doesn't tear stuff up (and leave it), we put it back the way it was.”
