A variety of items will be on the docket when City Council convenes for their biweekly meeting tonight in the chambers of City Hall.

Just in time following the first snowfall, they will be discussing their snow removal policy for the year.

"We'll be looking at the priorities. Norm Mack, our Roads and Drainage Manager updates that every fall. Sometimes they change a little bit, so he always likes to give us an update at the beginning of the snow season," shared Mayor Roy Ludwig.

He noted that they normally start talking about such matters right around this time of year, so it being almost right on time for the first snow is more of a coincidence.

Another item to be brought up is a massage parlor bylaw.

"In the past, we've had some of these establishments in town, and at that point in time they were not regulated. Going through the Police Board, we had asked the Chief to help us put together a bylaw that would ensure the proper running of these businesses, and he has done that. He (Police Chief Paul Ladouceur) will be there tonight to answer any questions and work thorough giving the first reading."

Ludwig added that there haven't been major problems in Estevan with the infamous shady dealings that can be associated with such places, so the point of the bylaw will be to head potential issues off. If they do arise, they have something with teeth to help deal with things.
