City Council Approves New Deal With Norman Northstars 

It was another short City Council meeting Monday evening. 


October 1st was the second last meeting of the current council, and the third consecutive meeting where all resolutions passed unanimously and without much debate. 


Outside of general inquiries, the largest portion of time was spent on a resolution to approve a new one-year agreement with the Midget “AAA” Norman Northstars for the use of the T.R.C.C. 


The new deal will have the hockey clubs rental costs increased by 2.5% over the previous agreement, which was signed back in 2015. 


On top of that increase, the new rental agreement does not include the use of the Mary Fenske boardroom, and the club will have to pay 50% of the current fee charged by the City for it’s use.  


Councillor Blake Ellis spoke in support of the one year deal, saying that it’s a fair arrangement and that they’re still showing their support of the team by giving them a discount. 


City Council rejected the idea of a five year deal, like the one that the team had requested, as they did not want to make a decision for both future councils and recreation committees.
