It will be a busy night for Weyburn City Council, as they get together for their first meeting of March. The agenda will include a number of items, including tenders for the public works and parks department, motions for a home occupation, and the motion to approve the development of the Weyburn Recreation and Culture Centre.
One contentious issue before council tonight will be a discretionary use application for a care home in the Creeks subdivision. The administration is recommending council approve the request for the care home on DeLaet Drive, but area residents are voicing concerns about the care home on the basis of neighbourhood safety, and how the care home could potentially lower their property values.
The tenders for public works include new maintenance equipment for the department, including two mowers for park maintenance. A new front end loader will also be voted on for the city.
Another tender being voted on will be for the asphalt and paving on Mergens Street from Coteau Avenue West and Prairie Avenue, paving 16th Street North from the intersection of 16th Street and Veterans Road, as well as paving work on 5th Avenue SE from 3rd Street to 4th Street. A total of six bids were received on the tenders.
The regular reports for council will also be tabled, including the Weyburn Fire Department’s regular report covering the months of January and February.
The meeting starts at 5:00 p.m. at City Hall.
Discover Weyburn will have full coverage of the meeting, on air and online, beginning Tuesday morning.
