The 'Speed Limit in School Zones' Bylaw was mentioned as part of an amendment request at the City Council meeting on Tuesday.
An amendment to change City Bylaw 36, was requested by Aidan Roy, Youth Representative for the Liberal Party.
"Since the last amendment to this bylaw, I've heard a lot of feedback from our community about what should be done to improve it," said Roy.
"In doing so I thought it would be right to stand on their behalf and propose this new amendment."
Roy proposed that the amendment should read "The speed limit in a school zone is set at 30 km/h between the times of 8 am and 10 pm."
Roy believes the benefits of this amendment would allow for delivery services, taxi services, and freight services to do their jobs more efficiently who are slowed down by the school zones when children are less likely to be around.
Roy added the benefits to Weyburn residents needing to drive around in those times too.
"The majority of our children do not attend school before 8 am and very few are at the schools past the time of 10 pm."
"Ultimately this amendment covers the maximum time a student would be in the school zone."
Roy also proposed the potential benefits to police.
"It would relieve the pressure off the police to enforce this bylaw at all times of the day."
Roy projected that the costs to the amendment would be low.
"It is as simple as bolting on a sign underneath our currently erected signs stating 8 am - 10 pm."
City Council plans to discuss this amendment at the next meeting, October 23rd.
