Buffalo City Works Director Les Hook gave his report to the council at their last meeting, and was asked about a number of concerns of some council members.
Councilman Russ Humphrey asked about signage in Crazy Woman Square to identify the restrooms and about the possibility of putting up signs saying no dogs allowed in the square.
After discussions, it was determined the Vision Buffalo Commission was in charge of ordering the restroom signs.
Instead of having no dogs allowed in the square, the council decided to put up waste stations with bags to encourage pet owners to clean up after their animals.
Councilman Stan Lakin asked about the kiosk for the Trails Board, and Hook explained what was happening with it.
Humphrey told Hook there was still a large limb in the creek near the Lobban Street Bridge that needs to be removed, and asked what progress had been made on the work in the alleys in town.
Hook said crews are still working on them and have completed most on the north end of town. Some alleys may require re-working grades to aid in runoff to the streets without affecting private property.
He gave an estimated time of completion of the alleys as next spring, or sooner if the weather cooperates. He said they can continue graveling the alleyways as long as there is no snow on the ground, and time would tell how much they can get done this winter still.
