Buffalo City Works Crews Busy With Various Projects

The dip in the intersection of North Adams Avenue and West Lott Street is in the process of being removed and curb and gutter will be added as well, according to Buffalo City Works Director Les Hook, who updated the city council at last week's meeting on a number of projects being handled by his department.

Hook describes the project.

The work is being paid for from one-percent curb and gutter funds and the Public Works budget, according to Hook. Hook also said crews will be repairing the street on Carrington Avenue in front of Rocky Mountain IGA, where the curb and a portion of the center park strip has been removed to accommodate semi-tractor trailers delivering to the store. Hook said the repairs will be done before winter.
City crews will also be removing trees west of the Buffalo Children's Center that are a potential fire hazard. Hook told the council he had received a reminder call from the State Fire Marshall about the trees and said they will be removed this fall. Hook also reported hiring a new full-time employee. Joe Hulet started with the city last week.
