There was a relatively busy agenda for last night’s meeting of Weyburn City Council.  

This included reports from Weyburn Fire Services, Public Works and Taxation Collection, and a presentation from City Manager Mathew Warren on the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program. A motion was carried unanimously to provide the province of Saskatchewan Ministry of Corrections, Policing and Public safety with the required resolution for the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program application.  

A Discretionary Use Development Permit for an open-air concert at the Spark Centre Outdoor Rink, hosted by the Weyburn Credit Union was approved by council at the meeting. 

“I want to thank the Credit Union for the sponsorship that they've done for the City of Weyburn,” said Councillor Dick Michel. “The spark center is good for the whole community, not just in Weyburn but the surrounding community.” 

Michel added the concert will be different this year, as they usually hold it downtown by the Credit Union. 

“As a former board member, it was exciting then, but now it's even better. We have a good facility, one of the best in Saskatchewan and it's going to be enjoyed by everybody.” 

Mayor Marcel Roy also announced City Hall would be lit up on June 18 for Scleroderma Awareness Month, and on June 19 for Native Prairie Appreciation Week.
