Niverville’s town council met for their regularly scheduled meeting at the Community Resource and Recreation Centre on the evening of October 19. The meeting was also streamed via Microsoft Teams. However, there were technical issues this week, so a few moments of the meeting were cut off for those attempting to participate online.

After some brief, standard housekeeping issues, the council opened the first of three public hearings for the night.

The first public hearing was for a conditional use permit for a contractor’s yard at 450 Kuzenko Street, in the industrial park. This proposal was unanimously approved with very little discussion.

The second public hearing was for a conditional use permit for Mikaela Wiebe, who hopes to open a one-chair hair salon out of her garage at 111 Claremont Drive. This proposal was unanimously approved pending a few standard conditions, such as that Wiebe provide enough parking and obtain an appropriate business license annually.

Councillor Dueck took a moment to thank Wiebe for properly applying for her home business. He noted that some home-based businesses may not be taking this necessary step.

The last public hearing of the night was a proposal to open a new restaurant at Unit 1-31 Main Street. A new commercial building is in the works for this address, which currently is home to a single-family home.

Santa Lucia Pizza has requested permission to open an eating and drinking establishment at this location with a 12-seat patio area. This was unanimously approved by council with minimal discussion.

A first reading was then given to a proposal to rezone the driving range of the Highlands. CAO Eric King explained that lots one through seven of this property are currently zoned commercial, but the intent is to rezone them into three different segments. Lots one, two, and seven would be rezoned to residential high density. Lots three, five, and six would be rezoned as parks and open space. And lot four would be rezoned to residential medium density. This proposal was also approved unanimously.

Finally on the agenda was the standard review and approval for the most recent cheques drawn on the town’s account. The cheque registry was approved in its entirety.
