City Attorney, Works Dept. Make Requests of Buffalo Council

Buffalo City Attorney Ben Kirven and Works Director Les Hook made a few requests of the City Council at their last meeting, tying up some loose ends and finalizing some projects they have been working on.

Kirven reported that contracts for a number of projects have been finalized.

Kirven also told the council that he has completed the final draft of the franchise agreement between the city and Bresnan Communications for cable television services in the city. Questions involving whether service would be offered at the new county fire hall and at the Greenleaf Subdivision were still in the process of being answered, he said.

Finally, one of the last easement agreements on the city water line project has been tentatively reached.

The agreement, according to Kirven, will allow the landowner a 4-inch water tap, replace any damaged trees that may occur in construction, grade and gravel any impacted roads, and set the tap fee at the in-town amount of $11,000 for the landowner to hook up to the line.

City Works Director Les Hook brought a request of the council from the Buffalo Tree Board, and he explains.

The council approved the request to apply for the grant.
