Weyburn City Council will meet Monday night at 5:00 p.m. for their first of two meetings in the month of February.

The agenda, compared to past meetings, may seem like it is light, but a number of key issues will be discussed, and voted on.

One of the big topics before the council will be a vote on the tenders for the purchase of four new vehicles for the city’s fleet. There were provisions in the 2019 budget which allowed for and budgeted for the cost of the vehicles.

The tender received a number of bids, all from local companies, for four vehicles.

The city is looking to purchase two crew cab trucks to be used in Public Works operations, and Water Treatment Plant operations. The city is also looking to buy a one-ton cab and chassis. The truck will need to have work done to add on a service body and welding unit, which will be tendered out at a later time.

The fourth vehicle the city is looking to purchase will be an SUV to be assigned to City Hall for out of town travel and general duty.

In addition to the tenders for the vehicles, the council will also receive the regular report from the Water Treatment Plant and will discuss the Employee Pension Plan.

We will have full coverage of the meeting on-air and online Tuesday morning.
