Stirling council highlighted the milestone of Stirling School hosting their first ‘e-tournament’ for video games on Jan. 18 which was hosted by Seth Ellingson and Dallin Ellingson. The game of choice was Super Smash Bros and the winners were Deacon Ainscough from Grade’s 1-4, Ty Thompson from Grade’s 5-8 and Will Selk from Grade’s 9-12. 

Items for Discussion:

A few issues were brought up at the Feb. 1 meeting of council, with the first relating to Raymond garbage disposal. It was moved that administration will draft a formalized agreement with the Town of Raymond and the issue will be brought back to council at a future meeting for further discussion and deals with regional garbage collection. 

Council also discussed a private and public partnership with ‘What’s Pop’n’, which it was directed that administration enter into the partnership agreement with Shaffer Brother Ltd. to open a ‘What’s Pop’n’ branded soda pop service in the Stirling Pool Concession. It was further requested by council for administration to explore the labour impact and potential modifications as required. 

The last item up for discussion was for council to move the date for Municipal Planning Commission meetings to precede the first council meeting of each month and should commence at 6:00 p.m.. It was noted that should a conflict arise with a Committee of the Whole meeting, the Committee of the Whole meeting will be scheduled to commence at 5:00 p.m..
