Buffalo City Attorney Ben Kirven reported to the city council that he has managed to tentatively set up a day to finally get the air conditioning units removed from the city property behind the Econolodge on East Hart Street.
The units were dumped in a ditch on the property and have been there for a number of years. Kirven has been working to find a plan to get them removed that wouldn't cost the city an exorbitant amount of money to remove and dispose of.
He explained the plan to the council.
He said they will pile the units and Powder River Heating and Air Conditioning will collect the refrigerant and the recycling center will then dispose of them.
Kirven also reported that Hydro Construction had accepted the counter offer from the city to settle the dispute over problems with a liner on one of the ponds at the waste water treatment plant.
Kirven said the company will settle and pay the city $19,500.
Finally, he said he has had contact with the final landowner to acquire easements on the NW water transmission line project, and they seem to be agreeable with negotiating for the easement so he will begin working to acquire those easements.
