Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Quinton Flint told council about future meetings and what is currently set in policy and bylaw.

As of the meeting on Mon. March 23, no bylaw or policy depicted the outlines for having an online meeting but with COVID-19 now firmly in Canada and prohibiting gatherings larger than five people, the CAO found it necessary to address it.

He agreed to adjust a bylaw for council review at the next meeting on April 13 as a permanent fixture as future emergencies may arise aside from the coronavirus.

Coun. Vickey Horkoff asked that only the town be able to record audio for their meetings, using “only council chambers authorized equipment.”

CAO Flint would also add that the recordings would be available online as well.

Lions Club building quotes submitted

Two contractors applied to possibly be the Lions Rec Centre  floor renovators including JG Contracting and Roger Golby.

After deliberation, it was decided to go with JG Contracting at a price of $6,084.75 to work on the flooring including the noticeable bubble in the middle of the building.

Ag Society 60 years

The Coronation Ag Society requested support from the Town of Coronation to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation Ag Society.

The Ag Society is hoping to have fireworks at this year’s annual event in recognition of 60 years in operations.

Council agreed to let them have a ‘big bang’ of a 60th anniversary under the condition that they contact the fire chief prior to the event and the day of and must have written approval from the Coronation Fire Department.

Busy Beaver Daycare request

Busy Beaver Daycare is an accredited daycare in Castor.

They requested attendance at their fundraiser to support their daycare program.

Since the request, it has been postponed due to COVID-19.

The daycare has also asked for any donations for their non-for-profit organization as it would help to reduce the cost of operations and lower the cost to the resident with children in the daycare facility.

Council agreed to give them something for a silent auction that is already from the town like swag items.
