Residential waste audit report deferred to later council meeting

Discussion by North Battleford city council members of the recently-done audit on waste and recycle streams in the city has been deferred to September.

City council was scheduled to discuss the North Battleford Residential Waste Audit 2019 at their council meeting Monday night. The audit had taken place during the summer and the report itself had already been completed and submitted.

At the last minute, council agreed to take it off the council agenda for that night.

It was noted by Mayor Ryan Bater that the agenda was already a full one, mainly because council was still on a summer schedule. It was also felt the waste audit topic “warrants discussion on its own,” Bater said.  

“The information in there may have an implication on city policy and I think it warrants a dedicated discussion on a night when we don’t have a full agenda like we do,” said Bater.

The intention now is to bring the issue back to a meeting in September for a full discussion.
