The Buffalo City Council has voted to approve Johnson County 4-H/Buffalo Trap & Skeet Club to to build an additional building for their shooting sports on land owned by the City of Buffalo at the shooting range east of town.

Jim Dawson, representing 4-H, spoke to the council on behalf of the program and the Buffalo Trap & Skeet Club (BTSC), asking for the council’s approval for the building.

A number of concerns of the council were addressed during discussion at the meeting, including the lease with the BTSC; concerns over heat and who would be responsible for the costs; plumbing for a restroom for the building; and building permits and site prep.

The building, estimated to cost just over $220,000 will be totally funded by money acquired by 4-H and the BTSC, with no cost to the city other than site prep by the city in-kind at about $24,000 and the waiving of building permits by the city at roughly $1,600 according to information provided by Dawson.

After discussing the council’s concerns, Mayor Shane Schrader asked for a motion to approve.

The council voted 3-1 to approve with councilwoman Myra Camino voting against.
