There will be lots to talk about tonight when members of Estevan's City Council convene tonight in City Hall.

One of the big topics on the agenda is the future of the weight room in the Leisure Centre.

"We had a good discussion the other night," shared Mayor Roy Ludwig, "and we hope to have more good discussions amongst Council and anyone else who may come and have questions and we'll keep the process moving forward."

There will also be a report presented by the Parks Manager on who will be awarded the contract for the demolition of the Civic Auditorium.

"We've got quite a few interested parties as far as the demolition goes. We'll be going over those Monday night as well."

The Manager of the Water Treatment Plant will also present the Waterworks Compliance Inspection Report. 

"The concern that we do have with trihalomethanes, we will be taking care of when we get that pipeline done starting this fall to Rafferty. So a lot of those concerns we have over that will be taken care of once we get the water pipeline to Rafferty."

There are two bylaws set to be accepted, the street naming of Brown Road and the cannabis zoning bylaw.

"We advertised both of them for two weeks to get feedback. Now we've done that, we'll be putting second and third reading on both bylaws."

He added that not a lot of feedback was received regarding the bylaws. 

Council starts tonight at 6 pm.
