Council agreed to apply for grant in aid funding from the Province for work on two roads this year. That includes Oak Avenue from the Cornerstone Church down to the Aqua Center and the Company road from Star Autobody to the Manitoba Saskatchewan border completing a project started last year. Manitoba Hydro will also be instructed to install lights on existing poles at the Channing outdoor rink and the back alley of 83 to 85 Bellevue.
Councilor Colleen McKee reported the Finance Committee is meeting with department heads to look at ways to do things more efficiently. She said they are open to any suggestions that will help the city save money. Mayor George Fontaine added they are taking very serious steps with the new budget system and plans for the coming year and will keep the public advised on what is happening.
