City council met on Monday night with a short list of items up for discussion.

Council approved this years snow removal policy during Monday's short meeting. There were no major changes to the Snow Removal Policy update as the city's roads and drainage manager Norm Mack said he was pleased with how things are rolled out during his short presentation, but hopes Estevan doesn't receive the amount of snow it did during last winter.

"We have a great crew on roads and drainage," explained Mayor Roy Ludwig. Norm and his staff do a terrific job, we look at this year being no different and that hopefully we don't have the amount of snow we did last year. I know the crew and the equipment is ready for it when it comes."

Estevan's Police Chief, Paul Ladouceur was also on hand to answer councils questions about the first reading of the massage parlor bylaw. The bylaw ensures there will be no unlawful activity taking place inside those establishments, and although there haven't been many problems in the past, the Mayor said they wanted to have something in place should any issues arise.

"We molded our bylaw somewhat along Regina's but made it more applicable to our city. The chief went over it and is very happy with it, so we put the stamp of approval on the first reading. Then we look forward to seeing if our citizens have any issues and then after that we'll give second and third reading and pass it into adoption for use."

Ladouceur noted that the police service will conduct frequent inspections and said if they are operating in the city, they are going to be operating lawfully.
