City Works Discusses Projects, Water Salesman, Schedules

Buffalo's City Works Director Les Hook gave his final report for May at the last city council meeting, discussing the status of various projects, reporting a problem with the city's water salesman, and requesting a schedule change for his crews.

He reported that the NW Water Pipeline Project is progressing well, and has made it to French Creek, so far installing 3,600 linear feet of the pipeline.

The South Burritt project was scheduled to be done with the intersection of Angus and Burritt at the end of last week, and the roadway in front of the pool was expected to be available to drive on when the pool opens for the summer.

Hook explained the problem on that section of road the city has
fixed .

He said contractors are scheduled to begin paving the old High School Hill on Burritt this week.

Crews have been working on city alleys as time allows.

The city's automated water salesman, located near the recycling center, was down due to a faulty relay switch. Chesbro Electric was looking into getting a replacement here as soon as possible.

The city council approved Hook to move his employees to 10-hour days through the summer.

Finally Hook responded to a question about the posts on Cemetery Road that have been knocked down. He said the city will be replacing the plastic posts with standard dilineator posts to prevent them from being run over.
