A reminder that regular Council Meetings are always open to the public. They are held every second and fourth Monday of each month, starting at 7:00 p.m., in the Council Chambers (on the upper floor of City Hall). Access is by the south-east door.
City Hall is an attractive brick building which was built in 1938 by the federal government, at a cost of $30,000, for use by the Post Office and by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who used the upstairs area for barracks. The photograph to the right was taken in 1938. The building was later expanded.
The RCMP left for larger quarters in 1954. Then, in 1980, the Post Office also moved on, at which time the City Administration took possession of the vacant building.
The main floor is now used by the ten administrative staff while the upstairs area has been converted into Council Chambers. For many years the public library occupied the basement, but they too moved on.
In 1992 City Council, under Provincial authority, declared the building as a Municipal Heritage Property. The designation is a recognition that the building is one of the oldest surviving properties in the city and displays unique architecture for this area.
Municipalities in Saskatchewan are granted their powers by the Provincial Government. Under various Acts, the Province sets out the areas of responsibilities for all rural, urban and northern municipalities, and school divisions, in the province. Our municipality may assume any or all of the responsibilities set forth in the The Cities Act by passing the required bylaws. We can not legally assume any responsibilities that are not prescribed in the Act.
Although fairly autonomous, municipalities are required to have certain actions, such as zoning changes, approved by the Province to ensure that the municipalities are following proper procedures. Provincial government departments also provide guidance and support to municipalities on day to day procedures and issues. Audited year-end financial statements, and other data, are provided to the Provincial Government for review purposes and data dissemination.
