Weyburn City Council will be holding their first regular meeting of the month tonight.  

The councillors will receive a number of their regular reports. This includes one from the building department, one from the Public Works department, and another from the water treatment plant. One of the highlights of the report from the water treatment plant is that Nickle Lake is at a full level, which has helped to improve the quality of the raw water in the system.  

There will also be a pair of special occasion permits reviewed. The first is for the 115th edition of the Weyburn Fair. They require a special occasion permit to be issued by the City of Weyburn to be allowed by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority to serve alcohol during the fair.  

The other permit is also for SLGA licensing. An upcoming wedding that will be held at the Weyburn Motocross Track has requested the permit so they are able to serve alcohol there. Written municipal approval is required for all outdoor functions that will be serving alcohol outside of a commercially permitted establishment.  

The final item that will be before the council is a request from the Weyburn Arts Council for a flag raising on June 17th to commemorate Pride Month. Administration, in preparing the request, noted the policy meets the requirements of the flag-raising policy as Pride Month is a federally recognized event.  

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