Highlights from September 11, 2017 Council Meeting

Friends of Kinsmen Park representative Tammy Anderson-Jackson attended Council’s September 11 meeting to provide an update on the local non-profit committee’s plan for Kinsmen Park, which includes construction of The Shack. The proposed new building will replace the existing ice shack and will house a concession, heated dressing room, and both heated and unheated storage rooms. Anderson-Jackson said the project will be funded by donations and is expected to be under construction by spring 2018.

Four Kindersley volunteers were formally recognized for their contributions by Molson Canadian after being nominated in the beer company’s A Taste of Who We Are volunteer recognition campaign. Roxanne Atkinson, Cheryl Glass, and Councillor Shaun Henry were each presented with a custom made and engraved wooden Molson crate containing branded beer glasses. A fourth recipient, Judy Lavoie, was unable to attend the presentation to receive her crate.

Council acknowledged the efforts of the newly formed Kindersley Community Service Group, and in particular, the Chase the Ace initiative the group is undertaking as a fundraiser for the indoor aquatic facility. Mayor Rod Perkins thanks the Community Services Group, which represents several established community organizations from the Kindersley service area, and was formed for the intent of assisting with and supporting projects that enhance the well-being of the community.

Council defeated a motion to waive the cost of metered water consumption by the Kindersley Slo-Pitch Association for land located adjacent to the Regional Park campground.

Council approved applications for discretionary use home-based businesses at 107 7th Avenue West and 200 7th Avenue East on the condition that no written submissions objecting to the businesses are received from assessed property owners within a 75 metre boundary prior to August 29, 2017 as per conditions of the Zoning Bylaw 04-14

A motion to approve and proceed with installation of new pedestrian traffic signals along Main Street was tabled at the request of Council so that Administration could obtain another quote from an extra set of lights as opposed to pedestrian walk signals.

Council accepted a quote from Guardian Chemical in the amount of $31,931.11 plus taxes to supply Roadtek road stabilizer as a pilot project in the Industrial Area.

Administration was authorized by Council, in accordance with the Tax Enforcement Act, to proceed with 2017 tax enforcement measures on properties in arrears.
