The town’s elected officials have resolved to start a process to expropriate land on the northeast edge of Kindersley in order to address drainage concerns.
Council members passed a resolution at a meeting on June 11 to acquire land at the civic addresses of 701 13th Avenue East and 705 13th Avenue East, or to acquire an interest over the land, and to proceed under the provisions of the Municipal Expropriation Act.
The land is located north of the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel. The resolution states that the land is being acquired for the purpose of implementing flood mitigation strategies on the land such as building a storm water retention pond. The current owner of the land is Camoloy Investments Ltd. (Camoloy).
Mayor Rod Perkins read the resolution to council and he pointed out that steps are being taken to expropriate the land because the town has been unable to acquire the land by coming to an agreement with the landowner.For more on this story, please see the Jun. 13 print edition of The Clarion.
