Buffalo City Attorney Ben Kirven requested permission from the city council to began acquiring the easements and rights-of-way for the NW Water Transmission Line Project.
Kirven said he has received the first easement agreements from WWC Engineering and will now, with council approval, pursue the rest of the easements and rights-of-way.
He explains more about the project.
The water line will run from near the airport east near the fairgrounds and under Interstate 25 and continue out to the Greenleaf subdivision giving the city a redundant water supply line and provide water for possible future growth of the city in that area.
Buffalo Police Lt. Andy Tkach, substituting for Chief Jason Carder, reported to the council that Officer Brice Johnson has completed his Field Training program and is now on patrol on his own.
Chief Carder and two other officers were at active shooter's training.
Public Works Director Les Hook reported that a citizen has requested the city look into installing street lights on a city street that currently has none.
Hook said the street is part of the Commerce Park Subdivision and was approved before the current city codes were adopted, explaining why street lights were not required at that time.
The council approved Hook to look into costs with Rocky Mountain Power to install the street lights.
