Council returns from summer break

After a four-week summer break, Brandon City Council resumes its regular meeting schedule on Monday.

Representatives from the Brandon University Students’ Union will appear before council, requesting the annual Rock the Block street party be designated as a community event.

The designation is necessary in order to obtain the required liquor permit for the event to be held Sept. 5.

BUSU is also requesting the city approve the closure of Rosser Avenue between Seventh and Ninth streets for the duration of the event, waive the noise restriction bylaw, provide police officers and provide barricades, parking signs, etc.

A public hearing will also be held on conditional use and variance applications for 1233 Rosser Ave. regarding an electronic advertisement sign.

Council will consider two accommodation tax funding requests. The first is a request from Brandon University Athletics for $21,500 to host the 2016 Canadian Interuniversity Sport Women’s National Volleyball Championship.

Prairie Fruit Growers is requesting $3,250 to host the 2015 Manitoba Direct Farm Marketing Conference in March 2015.

Also on the agenda is a resolution to support the establishment of an Assiniboine River Basin Commission.

Two subdivision applications will be addressed — for property east of Tracey Street to create 14 lots; followed by 1660-34th St. to create 44 lots.

City council meets at Brandon City Hall on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
