Some questions around the Melfort and District Chamber of Commerce will be addressed during Monday night's council meeting.
Mayor Rick Lang told northeastNOW a couple of organizations have stepped up and offered to take over managing some of the big events that were previously handled by the chamber. The upcoming car show June 15 will be run by the Melfort Business Revitalization Corporation this year, Lang said, and this year's parade July 20 will be run by the Melfort Agricultural Society.
The chamber’s long-time Executive Director Nicole Gagne resigned earlier this year, and the chamber's doors were temporarily closed until a replacement is found. Financial issues have also plagued the organization after its bank account was frozen by the Canada Revenue Agency last fall.
Other items to be discussed during Monday night's council meeting include proposed zoning bylaw changes which could allow for duplexes to be built off Broadway Ave. and Matilda St.
Council was also asked to address time in lieu for city management staff, as the City of Melfort does not currently have a policy in place and employees are often required to work after regular hours to attend meetings, respond to emergency situations, or troubleshoot at one of the city's facilities.
While it's not on the agenda Monday night, Lang said the grand opening of the city's new skate park will occur in July.
