Weyburn City Council will be re-visiting a number of key discussions when they meet at City Hall Monday night. There will be a few new items on the agenda as well.

The development levy bylaw, which has been discussed at great length in recent weeks, will once again be before the council. With the vote on the fees policies contained in the bylaw passing the last meeting, it is expected the bylaw itself will be passed this time.

Another item of unfinished business council will talk about will be the electrical and instrumentation tender for the water reservoir expansion project. At the last meeting, it was moved by Councillor Dick Michel to amend the overall contract price of the second expansion contract to include the addition of the electrical and instrumentation work.

Council will look at the bids submitted for a request for proposal for culvert repairs, which are needed along Highway 39. A total of seven companies submitted bids for the work, which is budgeted to cost $100,000. The repairs are needed along the highway, between 3rd Street and Government Road.

Appointments to the Police Commission will be handled by the council at the meeting, along with two home occupation applications, and the annual water treatment plant report. The meeting starts at 5:00 p.m. at City Hall. We will have full coverage, on-air and online, Tuesday morning.
