During their regular meeting July 8, Sylvan Lake councillors:

• approved the first two of three readings of a new bylaw to revamp the existing Waste Bylaw. The new bylaw was created to accommodate the town’s move to automated collection of household garbage later this year. Due to the number of changes required to the existing bylaw, staff presented a new bylaw instead incorporating relevant parts of the old bylaw.

Passage of the first two readings will allow town staff to begin an education and communications strategy to let residents know about changes planned when new trucks and bins are received this fall.

• approved a revised development permit for construction of an addition and expansion at the back of Big Moo. Council has previously approved construction but the concrete block exterior fire wall wasn’t constructed in accordance with the original approval. As well, a survey indicated the block wall encroaches 0.05m (2”) onto the adjacent lot. Council approved changes and required an encroachment agreement be registered on the titles of the two lots, both of which are owned by applicant Steve Pritchard.

Council’s approval was required because the property is in the Waterfront Direct Control District.

• approved demolition of the boarded up building at 4613 Lakeshore Drive which was most recently Caribbean Flava restaurant. It’s located between Bravo Gastro Lounge and Subway. Council’s approval was required because the property is in the Waterfront Direct Control District.

• passed first reading of a bylaw to rezone town-owned property in Beacon Hill subdivision from Neighbourhood Shopping Centre to Public Facility district to allow for construction of a new fire hall. A public hearing was set for Aug. 26, after which second and third reading of the bylaw may take place.
