Buffalo City Works Director Les Hook gave his regular report to the city council at their last meeting, saying the 500,000-gallon storage tank is complete, but the interior floor has issues he wants corrected before he will accept the project.
He explains further.
The rest of the project is going well, according to Hook. As of the meeting there has been over 12,000 feet of pipeline installed in the ground.
The last of the light poles at the sports fields complex were being installed, Hook said, and the next step would be for electricians to run new wiring for the lights.
The contractor for the complex will be back in the fall to raise one of the dugouts to keep it from filling with water if the city wants them to do so, and the backstop netting will be looked at further to see if increasing the height and width of the backstops will better help with stopping foul balls.
The Burritt Street project has concrete poured to the top of the old High School Hill and city crews will be looking at replacing water and sewer lines in the area to keep from possibly having to dig the new street surface up to work on them in the next few years.
The city will abandon a water line between Gatchell and Brock, putting those homeowners on the new 12-inch high-pressure line due to rotting fittings on the existing pipe.
Hook said some city crews are still working on alleyways.
Councilman Russ Humphrey asked Hook to have crews fill potholes on Bozeman Avenue and repair a bulge in the street at Flatiron Avenue.
