City Council met tonight and it was a short meeting.

City Council approved a request by the Fire Fighter Association for a special permit for their Fall Training Symposium. They are having a meet and greet on October 6th, 2018 with about 300 people.  

The City Council also agreed to the request to be one of the sponsors for the Estevan Art Council's art show that takes place November 2 - November 4, 2018.

 

The Economic Development Business Incentive Program policy was on the reports list for this evening. Economic Development Officer Dwight Fitz Bramble requested for the addition to the policy that the business 

is responsible for the paving and maintenance of the parking lot which was approved.

 

Bramble believes, "the concept of city council going in this direction, I think it's really important and critical that we are moving towards conservation efforts to improve the business environment, particularly attracting businesses."

He had high hopes the the program will help old businesses as well as new.
