Highlights of March 26, 2018 Council Meeting

Kindersley Iron Horse Klippers president Brett Sautner addressed Council to request support in helping to stabilize the team’s financial position. Sautner presented a business plan that detailed opportunities for increased community involvement and revenue generation, and asked Council to consider subsidizing the Klippers’ ice time to help position the team for success in the short term.

Council acknowledged that the Klippers bring great value to the community but also expressed a desire to hear input from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) about proposed changes to the league’s overall business model that would provide better support to individual teams. Council agreed to provide the Klippers with a letter in support of the recommendations provided for Sautner to take to the SJHL’s annual general meeting in June.

In effort to complete the Wall of Champions in the WCEC without additional cost to taxpayers, Council resolved to temporarily suspend the KCIP grant program for 2018 and to direct this year’s Sask Lotteries funds of approximately $45,000 to the Wall of Champions project and the Canada Day fireworks program. Any remaining funds will be directed toward the grand opening of the Kindersley Aquatics Centre.

Council agreed to terminate the procurement process for IT Managed Services having determined that none of the proposals received for the Request for Proposals (RFP) for IT Managed Services satisfied the expectations of Council. Council directed Administration to review current services and to provide a report recommending alternative options for the provision of IT services for the Town of Kindersley.
