The Development Levy has been discussed in City Council meetings for a number of months as suggestions of changes have delayed the passing of the Bylaw.

At Mondays City Council meeting, the Development Levy Bylaw was up for discussion again alongside the development charges policy.

"Staff have actually made some changes for Council to look at in terms of assisting what council wants, in terms of being able to be responsive within today's market to look at reducing that cost," explained Roy Hardy, Weyburn's City Manager.

"Council yet again has come up with another idea that they want to float out and so the discussion will continue on that," added Hardy.

The discussion should be a quick one as the motion was passed on Monday for the Bylaw and Policy to be moved to the Strategic Planning Meeting which followed the Public meeting to make it easier to "hash it out" so that in the next council meeting, the Bylaw can be passed.

Hardy hopes that by February, Council will be on the same page and be in a position to communicate to developers the changes made and the assessment of development fees in the future.
