Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, council suspended operations of the Canora swimming pool for the entire 2020 season. Councillor Pelechaty requested a recorded vote.

Council accepted the offer of Max and Jae Zbitniff to purchase a vacant lot on Second Avenue West (Lot 15, Block 3, Plan G2107) for $1,000.00 plus GST, provided the current year’s taxes are prepaid and payment is received within 30 days.

Council suspended its regular meeting and opened a public hearing regarding an amendment to the zoning bylaw that will add “processing plants” as a permitted use in a C-3 Highway Commercial District. No written or personal representations were received. Council closed the public hearing regarding the amendment to the zoning bylaw and resumed the regular council meeting.

A bylaw to amend the zoning bylaw was read a second and third time, and adopted.
