A number of Resolutions were approved by Buffalo's City Council at last week's meeting, approving a grant application, the course of a trail and a company to pursue a fiber optic line into the city. City planner Zach Montgomery explains Resloution No. 1308.
Resolution No. 1309 allows for the mayor to apply for a right-of-way for a trail across BLM lands to connect the existing Buffalo Trails System to the US Forest Service's Brush Creek Trail System.
The council then approved Resolution No. 1310, supporting the city's participation in the Wyoming Rural Development Council Phase II Community Assessments. The resolution approved the city to pay for food and lodging for the assessment team to stay in town for three to five days to conduct their assessment.
The information gained will contribute directly to the economic and community development grant the city will be applying for later this year. The assessment will be scheduled for April or May of this year.
Resolution No. 1311 gives the city's support for Advanced Communications Technologies, or ACT, to pursue the feasibility of them installing fiber optic lines to the downtown business corridor.
If the company determines it is cost effective, they may expand services to the schools, the hospital and other essential areas of the city.
The council approved all of the Resolutions.
