An update on the city’s cleanup after a massive snowstorm and Moose Jaw Event Centre’s naming rights are just a couple of the items on the agenda for Monday night’s city council meeting.
Over the course of Oct. 23 and 24, the City of Moose Jaw was hit with a nasty snowstorm that saw over 30 centimetres of snowfall over a 48-hour period.
The heavy, wet snow along with high winds closed highways and shut down the city’s transit services. It left residents without power for extended periods of time, disrupted waste collection, led to the flooding of two city facilities and damaged over 1,000 city trees.
The city will once again be looking at contracting a third-party group to find a sponsor for the naming rights in the Moose Jaw Events Centre.
The idea of bringing in a third party was brought before council in June but was put on hold as a group of citizens offered to help the naming committee with awarding a sponsorship contract.
With that being unsuccessful, the city is looking to contract Performance Sponsorship Group at a quoted price of $29,000 and a commission of 20 per cent.
A discretionary use application will be going before city council for 303 Coteau St. W. for a new church.
The building had been used as a place of worship from the 1940s to the early 2000s before the church ceased operation.
In 2010, a discretionary use application was approved to utilize the building for a place of worship and in 2020 the building changed from a church to a retail store and residence.
This new application was put forward by Living Springs Church.
There is also a discretionary use application to use one of the classrooms at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church at 15 Paul Dr. for a marriage and family therapist office.
City council will also receive the results from the budget and city services survey. As well, Coun. Dawn Luhning is expected to make a motion in regard to a pedestrian crossing at Fourth Avenue Northwest and Thatcher Drive.
