Information about the city’s affordable housing strategy could be revealed at Monday’s Brandon City Council meeting as economic development officer Sandy Trudel will make a presentation on her work.
Trudel has been designated the city’s point person on the affordable housing file and spent the summer working on a plan promised in Mayor Shari Decter Hirst’s state of the city address earlier this year.
The agenda for Monday’s regular meeting also includes a presentation from Gord and Dianne Peters, who are the lead fundraisers for the Restoring the Glory campaign to restore the Display Building No. 2 or Dome Building on the Keystone Centre grounds.
When complete, it will serve as the headquarters for the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba.
Under general business, councillors will debate the merits of a report on solid waste collection for multi-family properties, the adoption of a new land transaction policy, acquiring 337 15th St. N., to build a flood water pond and pumping station, and first reading for bylaws to designate the residence at 339 Victoria Ave., and the former First Baptist Church at 1037 Lorne Ave., as municipal heritage sites.
The council meeting starts at 7:30 p.m.
