Council Notes - February 11th, 2014

Talisman Energy Delegation. Jesse Kirillo of Talisman Energy gave a brief update to Council on the name and logo designs for the Edson Leisure Centre following their purchase of the naming rights late last year. The name they’ve selected is ‘Talisman Place’ and two logo choices were brought forward to get Council’s feedback. Above is the logo selected. It may see a few small changes before it’s finalized.

Tenders. Council awarded the 2014 Front End Snow Blower Tender to Fort Garry Industries Ltd. In the amount of $118,355.00 + GST and the options in the amount of $8,604.00 +GST. Council also awarded the 2014 Loader Tender to SMS Equipment in the amount of $189,152.00 Including GST and the options in the amount of $53,800.00 + GST. It was noted this comes in slightly under budget and will allow the Town to keep the new Snow Blower at the airport with the current one being refurbished for use around Town during snow removal.

Land Sale. Council agreed to sell the closed laneways and a portion of Spruce Street in the Pine Avenue Subdivision to abutting landowners.

The next Council Meeting is scheduled for February 18th at 7:30pm in the Council Chambers of the Edson Civic Building.
