Regina City Council has voted to open more off-leash dog parks in Regina.
Council approved the creation of three more of these parks in the long-term at the May 30th council meeting.
One is set to open up in the east industrial area this summer.
Council also approved a new program for dog owners.
Owners will be able to take their dogs to a designated city pool for a day where their dogs could swim at the end of the summer.
Also at the meeting, council approved heritage designation for four buildings within Regina.
The properties are: the Weston Bakery Building, the Old Number One Fire Hall, Frontenac Apartments and Somerset Block.
And, a motion brought forward by Councillor Shawn Fraser to research what it would take to make the City of Regina a “Living Wage Employer” was pushed back.
This motion would mean the City of Regina would pay its employees – at the minimum – the calculated living-wage for Regina, which is about $16.50 per hour.
Fraser wanted to see the adoption of this policy for the 2017 budget, but council voted to defer it to the 2018 budget.
