All five projects for the 2014 dust control program have been approved.
Councillors approved the dust control program at Monday’s meting. The program reduces dust on gravel streets and lanes in the City of Moose Jaw.
The 2014 projects are:
• A length of 82 meters on Eighth Avenue Northwest from Fairford Street West to Ominica Street West
• A length of 1,082 meters on Manitoba Street West from 11th Avenue Northwest to 16th Avenue Northwest
• A length of 596 meters on Laurier Street from First Avenue Northwest to Fourth Avenue Northwest
• A length of 102 meters on Fifth Avenue Southwest from Iroquois Street to Coteau Street
• A length of 92 meters on Fifth Avenue Southwest from Maple Street to Home Street
The total length for the 2014 dust control program is 1,954 meters.
Other items considered at Monday’s meeting:
• Council received and filed the notice of the next development appeals board meeting scheduled for April 22 at 5 p.m. in committee room B on the second floor of city hall.
• Council received and adopted the minutes of the recent meetings of the executive committee, the cultural diversity advisory committee, the youth advisory committee and the municipal planning commission.
In the municipal planning commission minutes, there were two items requiring council approval. It was for the mayor and city clerk to approve a condominium plan on the 900 block of Bradley Street with all costs incurred by the applicant. Council approved the recommendation.
The second item was for the mayor and city clerk to submit a comment for a proposed residential subdivision in the rural municipality of Moose Jaw. The comment as recommended was that “no direct City of Moose Jaw water and sewer service connections will be provided for the proposed subdivision.”
However, Coun. Dawn Luhning put forward an amendment to remove the word “direct.” The recommendation as amended was approved.
