  • 100% last year
  • 50% this year
  • 25% for 2018-2020
A request for the garage building permit for Derrick and Kelly Knight at 313 3rd Ave SW be extended until the end of this year was approved.

Council also approved a request from Darcy Ward to consolidate adjacent lot 330 8th Ave SW (Block 41, Lot 6) with lots 334 and 338 8th Ave SW (Block 41, Lot 4 and 5).

One of the main topics of discussion was regarding an outdoor fire policy. A motion was carried to put the following policy into effect :

The Town of Eston will continue to allow outdoor fires, but a fire ban will be put in place if conditions become too try.
Wood burning fire pits should be covered with a heavy metal screen, and the pit's width cannot be more than 36 inches. The fire needs to be contained in a non-flammable appliance made of at least 1/16 inch thick material . Fires must always be supervised and should never be left unattended. Burning of any substance besides charcoal, propane and clean wood is against the law.

A request from Maynard Clarke was approved for a boulevard tree to be removed at 116 3rd Ave SW to allow the placement of a driveway.

Full Gospel Church will be holding an outdoor church service in Jamieson Park on Sunday, July 2nd after gaining council's approval.

Ross Villalon's deck building permit for 217 2nd St NE was approved, subject to further conditions and approval of the Building Inspector.

A motion was also passed to close Main Street from 2nd Ave to 3rd Ave from 8:00am to 3:00pm on Friday, June 30th for the Canada 150 sidewalk sale.

Eston's councillors were reminded that the next regular council meeting is at 8:15 pm on June 28th.
