Recent Drug Bust Topic at City Council

Recent Drug Bust Topic at City Council

Johnson County News Director for Sheridan Media, Aaron Palmer, has this report from Tuesday's Buffalo City Council meeting.

The Buffalo City Council, at their Tuesday meeting, heard from Buffalo resident and substitute teacher Jonna Nimick, who addressed the council regarding a recent drug bust at the high school where a number of kids received punishment, but not an adult who was allegedly supplying drugs to the kids.

She told the council she was upset with the Buffalo Police Department for not making an arrest on the adult and said there is a serious drug problem in the city that needs to be dealt with.

She and the kids that attended the meeting with her will continue coming to the council meetings to remind the council that something needs to be done.

Mayor Randy Dyess said he understood and thanked her for becoming involved but said the city could not comment because there is an ongoing investigation.

The council approved on first reading, Ordinance No. 1344, which will amend city code to change the time of the council meetings.

The Ordinance was brought by councilman Russ Humphrey, who has attempted unsuccessfully to have the time changed for a number of years.

Councilman Bill Hawley asked Humphrey to explain his reason for wanting to change the meeting time.

The Ordinance will need to be approved on second and third reading before it would take effect.

From the Johnson County News Desk, I'm Aaron Palmer with news.
