City Council met last night to discuss the matter concerning the City of Estevan. Before the meeting began, the volunteers of the Canada Cup of Curling were recognized for their hard work. A glowing letter was read from Canada Curling by Mayor Roy Ludwig.
"That was fabulous," Ludwig said of the letter, "and we are so happy and proud of our volunteers. we can't say enough about them. As I've said in the past, I believe we've got the best volunteer base anywhere in the province for that matter, the country. So we're so proud we have these that will always come forward and help us out. That's why we're able to hold such great events within our city."
The volunteer committee has been approached by both CurlSask and Curling Canada to host more events but they have asked for some time to regroup before committing to another large event.
City Council also discussed how to entice more people to sign up for electronic billing for their utility bills as well as pre-authorized payments. The decision was made to hold four draws per quarter, so four per year for a $250 credit on the utility bill for anyone who signs up for electronic billing. Anyone who signs up for pre-authorized payments, they will be entered in for one of two draws for an IPad.
For more information on how to sign up for either of those options, call the City Clerk at 634-1800.
