Coun. Bob Graham reported on the formal presentation Morrin School principal Don Yavis made to the Morrin Agricultural Society regarding his idea of a hockey component in the school.
The idea is in the early stages but the Ag Society expressed a willingness to help, said Graham.
Rib Night was sold out and Donna Peloquin donated everything so any income from the ticket sales was a total profit for the Ag Society.
Graham added the Archery Club is active again and open from January until June in the curling rink as it is no longer in use.
Coun. M’Liss Edwards reported to council at their regular meeting on April 17 that the fire chief was able to acquire six SCBA units with a 10-year guarantee for the price of $12,000 allotted by Morrin village council at their March meeting.
Edwards also provided an advertisement for a chief administrative position.
“I’m just working it up so we have it,” said Edwards.
In other business, Mayor Helton referred to the Financial Statement presentation made by Monica Faupel of Endeavour Chartered Accountants at the March 20 where she stated the councillor signing the cheques needed to have the invoices in front of her and initial them at the time the cheques are signed.
Council, therefore, approved a motion to have the payroll statement provided to councillors at the next meeting and that would show the amounts being paid, as well as a bank statement quarterly, starting in the month of May.
Council has not been provided with statements showing income and expenses reports based on budgets on a regular basis.
Several corrections, missed attachments and incorrect wordings were made to the March 20 meeting minutes prior to a motion to approve the amended minutes.
