At last week's Buffalo City Council meeting, Marilyn Novotny, owner of the building housing a number of businesses at the corner of Angus and Burritt Streets, spoke to the council about numerous leaks that have cropped up and been repaired in recent years on the water line in front of her building.
The latest leak began last week, and that prompted her to approach the council to request the city repalce the line instead of repairing or patching the line as has happened in the last few years.
Novotny said it was not only an inconvenience for her and other property owners in the area, but she was concerned what the water may have done to the foundation on her building.
Mayor Randy Dyess said the water line was and is still on the list of immediate projects, but city crews were not able to get to it as yet.
He said the project to replace the line will begin Monday, March 26th.
Public Works Director Les Hook said the project should be done this week, except for the pavement repair, which must wait for warmer weather.
