Moose Jaw’s City Council is meeting Monday night at City Hall and here is a look at a few of the items on the agenda. 

An update will be given on the naming rights to Mosaic Place. Moose Jaw Ford is no longer the naming rights holder for the curling rink as that agreement has expired, so it is now known as the “Moose Jaw Curling Centre.”  

Meanwhile, the naming rights agreement with Mosaic Company expires on Aug. 31. The signage is currently being removed as the search continues for a new sponsor. 

City administration will be putting forward amendments to the Replacement Housing Incentive Program. The program was put in place to encourage the construction of new housing in older areas of the city. 

Under the current terms of the program, construction must be substantially completed within one year of the building permit being issued. The amendment would remove the one-year timeframe subject to having an active building permit. 

The program also allows the owner to receive a five-year tax exemption beginning Jan. 1 of the following year of completion. The other amendment would allow for the tax exemption to be transferable so that the property's ownership can change within the five-year period and the owners can continue to benefit from the tax exemption. 

Finally, the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will be coming to City Council as they look to secure a $55 million loan for their plant renewal project. 

While the City of Moose Jaw would not have to put up any money for the loan, city council would need to approve providing a $14.3 million guarantee for the 26 per cent share the city has in the water treatment plant.  

The guarantee would mean a debt obligation which would count against the city’s debt limit.
