The creation of reduced-speed school zones will be a topic around the Brandon City Council table at the upcoming Tuesday meeting.
Rod Sage, general manager of operations with the city, will present to council on the subject.
The goal is to implement the reduced-speed zones prior to Sept. 1.
Two major accommodation tax funding requests are on the agenda — $30,000 is requested for the Brandon Curling
Club to host the 2015 Safeway Select Manitoba Men’s Championships in February 2015; and $35,000 is requested for the Arabian Horse Association to host
the Canadian Nationals Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show in August.
The 2014 Brandon Emergency Plan, developed by Brian Kayes, the city’s director of risk and emergency management, will be presented to council.
Council will also consider a resolution for the Association of Manitoba Municipalities regarding the size of buffer zones for mosquito fogging. If passed, the resolution would see AMM lobby the province to allow for individual municipalities to determine the appropriate size of buffer zones.
City council will meet at city hall Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
