At their meeting last week, the Buffalo City Council approved Resolutions drafted by City Attorney Ben Kirven, dealing with drug testing policy changes for city employees and a grant to fund the Southwest Quadrant project.
Resolution No. 1336 changed the drug testing policy for city employees to bring them in line with worker's compensation rules to qualify the city for a discount on the city's payments to the program.
The Resolution was sent to the organization which made two revisions to the draft and they were accepted by the city council.
Also approved was Resolution No. 1337 to pursue a USDA Grant to help fund the city's SW Quadrant Project.
Kirven and Mayor Randy Dyess explain further.
Kirven also told the council that the last entity has agreed in principle to the easement for the city's water transmission line project west of town along Highway 16.
The entity has received the agreement and has their legal counsel reviewing it, and Kirven believes the formal agreement should be reached soon, which will allow the project to begin this spring.
