On Monday evening, four volunteers from Kindersley were thanked for their contributions to the community.

The delegation was one of the highlights from the municipality's latest council meeting lasting just over an hour. Councillor Shaun Henry along with residents Roxanne Atkinson, Judy Lavoie, and Cheryl Glass received gifts to honour their commitment to the community.

Jessica Maddocks, a representative who made the presentation, awarded the gifts to the four recipients at the meeting.

An initial delegation was made by Tammy Anderson-Jackson representing the Friends Of Kinsmen Park (FOKP) group. Anderson-Jackson's presentation was based on receiving support from council involving plans to demolish the park's current shack and to build a new one in its place.

Discussion items between the delegate and council involving the new shack included the structure's security, fundraising and budget for the demolition and construction portions, and the partnership with Kindersley Soccer for the shack. A concept image and construction plans were provided at the meeting for council to view.

FOKP will be holding an annual general meeting tomorrow at the park's shack at 7:00 PM.

Other highlights from the council meeting

  • A motion was presented to begin the installation of pedestrian lights along Main Street intersections. After a lengthy discussion on the matter, council moved the motion to another meeting in order to acquire more information on the matter including a second quote from a different company.
  • The Kindersley Slo-Pitch Association had requested council to waive their use of metered water consumption for the purpose of maintaining the slo-pitch diamonds ahead of the K-Town Shakedown tournament later this month. Council shared a number of different view and options while discussing the agenda item. Ultimately, the majority of council moved to defeat the motion, thus denying their request for the time being.
  • Council carried a motion presented by the Kindersley Community Service Group (KCSG) for a Chase the Ace license. The group intends to help raise funds for the town's indoor pool budget with the license. Mayor Rod Perkins took the opportunity to thank KCSG for their support towards local initiatives and programs.
  • A request to begin plans for the construction of basketball courts in Elk's Park from resident Jason Hankewich was temporarily rejected by council. The reasoning behind the move was due to residents near the park voicing their concerns with the location of the proposed courts. Director of Community Services Tim Hanna has already approached Hankewich to examine alternative locations which may be considered for the project. More to follow soon.
  • Councillor Dean Galbraith shared details on a quote from Guardian Chemical as part of a pilot project to help maintain roads in the industrial area. The material is recognized as a stabilizer to help bond the roads due to the amount of heavy traffic passing through the area. Galbraith mentioned the test area for the project is located near Hill Acme Machine Limited and the veterinarian clinic. The quote total is $31,931.11 plus taxes.
  • Two home-based businesses were approved by council. Both are located on 7th Avenue East (100 and 200 blocks).
