TOWN OF SEDGEWICK LIBRARY BOARD – RE-APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS

ROLLS 30005329 & 30005331 – REQUEST TO FORGIVE TAX PENALTY

BYLAW 556 – ANIMAL CONTROL BYLAW
Council directed administration to confirm with a resident by letter that households are only allowed 2 dogs.
SEDGEWICK PUBLIC LIBRARY BOARD – REQUEST FOR FUNDING
In response to a presentation made by a delegation earlier in the meeting, Council decided to defer a request from the Library Board for the Town of Sedgewick to purchase a building on Main Street that the library could move to until their next meeting. Council directed administration to explain to the board that due to budgetary constraints and their term of office soon coming to an end, it was unlikely that they would move forward with the proposal at this time.
OUTDOOR WATERING – REVISION OF BYLAWS
Council directed administration to present a version of the Fees and Charges Bylaw at the next regular meeting providing for an escalation of water fees once households and businesses exceed 30 cubic meters in one month of utility billing and to also bring back a revised version of the Outdoor Watering Bylaw limiting outdoor watering permanently to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7pm to 11pm.
FLAGSTAFF SCOTTISH CLUB – HIGHLAND GAMES
Council waived the portable stage rental fee for the Flagstaff Scottish Club at their Highland Games event on August 21st, 2021.
