Regina city council gets together for its monthly meeting on Monday night and one thing on the table for councilors to consider is a new fire bylaw.
That bylaw would call for landlords to perform a test on smoke alarms at their properties every six months. Over the last decade, 10 fire-related fatalities happened in residential rental units.
Council will also discuss an organic waste program. A pilot project would see organic waste bins for things like yard clippings and food scraps with the city saying that makes up for half of the material which currently goes into the trash.
This project would also mean a slight increase in your property tax with homeowners paying as much as 51 dollars more.
If the go-ahead is given, the project would start in 2020.
