City Engineer Wayne Hill, when updating the Buffalo City Council on projects he is working on, was asked by Councilman Russ Humphrey how many feet will be removed from the crest of High School Hill in the upcoming project.
Hill said RFPs or Requests For Proposals had gone out and engineers would be studying the area to determine exactly how much material will need to be removed, but based on his preliminary studies, he believes it will be anywhere from eight to ten feet.
Resident Carolyn Fox then asked why the project was even needed, and Mayor Randy Dyess explained.
The State Lands and Investments Board (SLIB) has approved up to $1 million for the project, which will require a 50% local match for the grant. Costs on the project will not be known until design work is completed later this year.
