At their last meeting, the Buffalo City Council approved a change order in the amount of $1,800 for the Cemetery Road Pathway Project.
Buffalo Public Works Directro Les Hook explains why the change order was necessary.
The pathway project is on hold for the winter, but Hook said work on the project would resume once the ground is sufficiently thawed to allow dirt work. Once the work resumes it should be completed fairly quickly, he said.
Hook also told the council that he will be hiring engineering services from States West Engineering this spring for the 15-year inspection on Tie Hack dam.
The Army Corps of Engineers requires these periodic inspections and they are expecting the report on the structure this year, he said.
Hook will have cost estimates to the council before the inspection, which will happen once the snow melts and allows access to the dam site.
City Attorney Ben Kirven reported that the last easement for the west Buffalo water line project is close to being completed, and he expects construction to begin this spring.
Police Chief Jason Carder said the investigation in the St. Lukes Episcopal Church/Bread of Life Food Pantry break-in and vandalism case is continuing.
