Buffalo, Jo Co Amend Engineer Agreement to One Year

The City of Buffalo and Johnson County have adopted a change to the original agreement between the two entities for a joint city/county engineer to reflect a commitment for at least one full year.

The original agreement's wording would allow either entity to back out of the agreement at any time for any reason, which could have jeopardized the position, making it more difficult to hire a quality individual.

City Planner Zach Montgomery made the request of the council Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, both Montgomery and County Planner Rob Yingling made a similar presentation to the commissioners which they also approved.he search will continue for a new engineer, and the agreement between the entities is expected to be drafted and signed in the coming weeks.
