Sewage Plant Building Will Go to Auction

The building that housed the lab and living quarters for Buffalo's wastewater treatment plant operator at the City's old facility will go to auction, after an individual asked the City if he could purchase the building.

City Works Director Les Hook approached the City Council with the request.

Originally the City had planned to demolish the building or possibly use it as a training tool for City fire crews, but Hook said if it was sold, then someone could get some use out of the building.

Councilman Bruce Hepp raised concerns over lead paint or other disclosures if the City were to sell the building, and City Attorney Ben Kirven will draft a disclosure for the pending sale of the building.

The Council approved Hook to continue looking into the possible sale of the building. He will set up a future auction for the sale of the City property.
