The Buffalo City Council, at their last meeting, approved the transfer of easements from the county to the city on a water line to the fairgrounds. The county acquired all easements and had built the water line but the city needed to take possession of the line and easements before they could maintain it as a city-owned line. The agreement finalized the process.
City Attorney Ben Kirven also made a request on behalf of Scott Carpenter regarding the easements, and he explains.
The water connector's agreement stated that Mr. Carpenter would be able to hook his properties up to the water line by paying the standard water tap fees and then to pay a monthly fee for the service. The council approved those requests.
Later, Kirven, on behalf of Mr. Carpenter, requested the city waive the tap fees associated with the agreement, and the council denied the request.
Kirven asked for approval for extending an offer of 37 cents per square foot to landowners in the Shiloh Subdivision for easement agreements on the new water transmission line from the water treatment plant to the city along Highway 16 West. The total amount of roughly $4,000 was approved by the council.
