City Receives Settlement Check For Waste Water Plant

Buffalo City Attorney Ben Kirven told the City Council at their meeting Tuesday that he had received a settlement check from Hydro Construction to close an agreement between the contractor and the city in a dispute over damage at the city's waste water treatment plant.

Kirven brought the settlement before the council last month, saying it might be the best solution to the issue.
The settlement proposal from Hydro Construction was originally $17,500 for a full release of claims the city has concerning the treatment plant, but he suggested the city make a counter-offer for $19,500 to cover the city's legal costs associated with the settlement.

Kirven said City Works Director Les Hook will be scheduling repairs on the liner at the waste water treatment plant soon.

Kirven then updated the council on the project to remove the air conditioning units dumped on city property.

The cleanup will be December 21st on the city property behind the Econolodge on East Hart Street.
