At their Tuesday meeting the Buffalo City Council discussed Consensus Funds but took no action on the matter yet.
Mayor Randy Dyess explained that the Town Of Kaycee would like to use the $733,000 in funds to complete road paving, curb and gutter and other improvements to nine blocks of roads in the town, mostly near the school. Discussions between the county commission, the mayor and Kaycee Mayor Tommy Knapp have shown support for the use of the money, although it will need to be adopted by each entity to become official.
Kaycee's Town Council is expected to endorse the idea at their meeting Monday, and the city council and county commission will discuss the matter at their next meetings March 19th.
Mayor Randy Dyess explained the reason the entities are backing the Kaycee project is because Buffalo has received the lion's share of the consensus funds for projects over the last few years.
If approved, the entities will go before the State Lands and Investments Board (SLIB) later this year, use the $733,000 as the local match to try for $1.9 million from the SLIB for the project.
