Council notes

 

Highlights from the June 9 meeting of Estevan City Council:

*Council will send a letter to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, backing the use of super grids to repair Highway 47 between Stoughton and the junction with Highway 1. A five-kilometre portion of 47 will be upgraded to a super grid this year as part of a pilot project.

*The City of Estevan will purchase a quarter-page ad in the Royal Canadian Legion Saskatchewan Command's annual Military Service Recognition Book for $295. Councillor Greg Hoffort wants to know if any advertising revenues for the publication are directed back to the Estevan Legion branch. Councillor Trevor Knibbs voted against the motion, as he would rather see the money directed to the local Legion.

*Council will sign a tri-party agreement for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games. The pact also includes the Estevan 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games Committee, and the Saskatchewan Games Council. Council has a couple of concerns about the agreement, but those will be addressed after the pact is signed June 13 at Affinity Place.

*A two-unit semi-detached dwelling for Estevan Diversified Services (EDS) participants with disabilities was approved. EDS has growing needs for housing for its participants, but few options, so the new building is needed. EDS owns the property where the current building stands. The present building would be demolished, and the new structure would be constructed.

*Council is asking for patience from residents as it begins work on 13th Avenue from Fourth Street to Sixth Street. Both blocks of 13th have already been closed due to the project. Resurfacing is expected to occur in July.
