Highlights from June 26, 2017 Council Meeting
Following successful negotiation, Council directed the Mayor and CAO to enter into an agreement with Pro-Bilt Structures Ltd. for the design services and work to construct the new Indoor Aquatic Facility. Members of the public are invited to attend the official sod-turning ceremony on Wednesday, July 5 and to celebrate the breaking ground for the project. The brief ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot west of the existing swimming pool site.
During the June 26 Regular Meeting, Council directed Mayor Perkins and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Bernie Morton to enter into agreements for two major capital projects:
- Western Regional Landfill
Council committed to funding Kindersley’s per capita portion in the amount of $1,664,996.58 for the construction of the Western Regional Landfill, and authorized the executive committee of Western Regional Landfill Inc. (WRLI) to execute all required construction and operation agreements once WRLI has received similar commitments from other participating municipalities representing 85 percent of the total group population. Council’s resolution also committed to Kindersley’s use of the new landfill for all of the Town’s regular municipal solid waste disposal needs as soon as the Western Regional Landfill becomes available.
- Fire Hall
Council directed the officials to enter into an agreement with GVN Structures Inc. to provide design services for the construction of a new fire hall. The services encompassed in the agreement will include schematic, conceptual, architectural, mechanical, electrical and stamped drawings, which will be issued for tender in the fall to construct the new fire hall on Railway Avenue.
An agreement will also be struck between the Town and Sun West School Division for cooperative decision-making related to sportsgrounds adjacent to Elizabeth School (200 5th Avenue East) and Westberry School (400 6th Avenue West.) This agreement will be in effect until August 31, 2022.
Council considered a request from property owner Tyler Bobbee to amend the Zoning Bylaw and Official Community Plan to allow for a residential spot zoning along 12th Avenue East so that a new residential building could be constructed. The request was denied, as was a related resolution to permit residential use as a discretionary use in C3 zones.
Council authorized the abatement of 2017 municipal taxes in the amount of $8,823.04 for the following non-profit organizations:
- Sask. Seniors Association (Senior Centre)
- West Central Crisis and Family Support Centre
- Kindersley Masonic Lodge
The abatement does not include the $300 base infrastructure levy, which is applied to all taxable properties in the Town of Kindersley.
Council accepted the recommendation of the Procurement Adjudication Committee and named Impact Energy Services Inc. as the successful proponent for the Norman Ritchie Community Centre Air Conditioning project, thereby directing the Mayor and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) to enter into an agreement in the amount of $29,561 plus applicable taxes to complete the project.
