Moose Jaw city council voted on the third reading of the proposed multiplex bylaw on Monday night, with the majority of council voting to pass the bylaw as it had been amended at the Jan. 28 council meeting.
The report from the city clerk/solicitor’s department stated the proposed bylaw was intended to refine specific provisions to the resolution council adopted in 2010 regarding the governance for the multiplex's operation.
Council passed the bylaw with four amendments. The first was regarding activities of the corporation so the corporation will be required to improve facilities for the purpose of minimizing operating grants or subsidies from the city.
The second amendment was to require the four community board members to be residents of Moose Jaw. The third amendment also made the provision for those community board members to be at least 18 years old. The previous bylaw didn’t provide who the members of the corporations are or the qualifications for the members of the corporations.
The report said members of a non-profit corporation such as the multiplex will decide who the corporation's directors are, if amendments will be made to the articles of incorporation and to approve a corporation’s financial statements.
