The public will get a look at the preliminary budget for the 2024 year tonight when Weyburn City Council meets for their regular meeting at City Hall. The presentation of the preliminary budget is one of many items on the agenda for the meeting.  

In addition to the preliminary budget, there will be a delegation from the Weyburn Mountain Bike Club. They will be making a presentation about the trail system the club has worked on developing on South Hill. The presentation will also include a request from the city for ongoing support for the expansion of the trails and the maintenance of the existing trail system.  

The Dog and Cat Bylaw will also be reviewed. The Weyburn Police Commission proposed some changes to the bylaw. This includes the wording of the bylaw to be changed from no person may have more than three dogs or three cats or a combination of both, to no household. The bylaw also includes some proposed wording changes for the section of the bylaw dealing with dangerous dogs and cats.  

The amendment for the Zoning Bylaw for the rezoning of the old Souris School Grounds will also be back before the council for the second and third reading. The proposed changes would see the property rezone from Residential Semi-Detached to Residential Multiple housing to allow for the construction of a multi-level senior residential care complex.  

Another proposed Zoning Bylaw will make its first appearance on the council’s agenda. This amendment is to rezone a property at the corner of 2nd Street and Prairie Avenue to Residential Semi-detached from Neighbourhood Commercial. It had originally been rezoned back in October of 2017.  

We will have full coverage of the meeting, on-air and online, starting tomorrow morning.
