A student summer pass that would give local high school students access to city transit and recreational facilities will be discussed at city council tonight. 

According to the report coming to council, the “Student Summer Super Pass” would run from July 1 and Aug. 31 at a rate of $95 plus taxes. It would be available to students ages 13 to 17. 

Also on the agenda is a discretionary use application for 701 Athabasca St. E. The owner of the property contacted the city in late April and early May because they were trying to sell the property but the Realtor said it could not be listed a residential because it is zoned as commercial. 

The city says the property was developed in 1938 with a storefront facing Athabasca Street and a residential unit in the back. At some point, it was converted into a one-unit dwelling without a permit and the current owner is looking to legalize the change. 

City council will also consider a discretionary use application for a contractor’s office and yard at 1744 Main St. N. 

City administration will give their department quarterly reports tonight, with the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will give its annual report. 

It’s also expected that Coun. Kim Robinson will put forward a motion to look at restricting the hours that people can loiter in public parks. 

Finally, in executive committee, city council will receive the feedback from stakeholder engagement when reducing school zone speeds from 40 km/h to 30 km/h. The bylaw is expected to go to three readings at the June 10 city council meeting.
