Bandstand won't swing without business support WINNIPEG BEACH Entertainment at the town's popular bandstand main stage may be curtailed next year if Main St.
business owners don't dig into their pockets to support the expense. The town launched a sponsorship program for businesses that support having entertainment having stage entertainment. But only about $1,000 had been pledged when the matter arose at a regular meeting of council Tuesday evening. Council heard a report from Recreation Manager Allan Sulyma, who outlined past and future activities. The report covered the gamut from the highly successful Canada Day, which included a watermelon eating contest, races for the younger set and more. "The only disappointing news I see [on the rec department front] is the sponsorship for the bandstand," said deputy mayor Daryl Carry. "We used to get thousands of dollars. It's very expensive to keep getting entertainment for the bandstand; I hope the businesses realize this. coach outlet coupons babies It's time for businesses to step up." Sulyma noted that he'd sent a letter to all town businesses. He also personally visited all the businesses on the front street, he said. "We definitely need more money because the bandstand is not cheap," Carry concluded. FROST, WET SPRING PLAY HAVOC WITH ROADS A wet spring and frost that was late in coming out of the ground played havoc with Beach streets. In June, many roads were made impassable as deep ruts developed when the frost emerged from below the surface. Roads and lanes were graded, then gravel put down. That's led to an above average application of gravel and extra maintenance. "This spring was probably the worst this town has ever seen," said Coun. John Pellick. "The budget we set for gravel just wouldn't cover the expense. We had no choice. Once again, public works came to the rescue. Hopefully we're not faced with this year next year." Pellick noted that some streets have yet to be oiled, a process that was put off schedule as damaged streets had to be returned to some state of normalcy. A test use of a new dust control product did little to improve roads. Public works superintendent Garry Sigurgeirson said the test was a failure. He said the product would have to be applied up to four times to get an optimal benefit. "It didn't turn out very well," the public works superintendent said. "It's a process that has to be done on a regular basis. It's pretty messy coach outlet stores deer park ny when it's wet; it's like flour and water put together. It sure didn't do the job it was supposed to do." Quipped Coun. Greg Mandzuk: "Can we forget about these experiments?"

Meetings up to four hours will be assessed $75 to use the hall area, while $150 will be assessed for periods greater than four hours and up to a full day. Rec Manager Sulyma had originally recommended a flat $200 fee for non profits, but Coun. Carry suggested that might not cover the costs. "We at least want to recover our costs," Carry said. Learned that the town will receive a $5,000 grant from the provincial Heritage Matters program. Coun. Pam Jackson said the money will be used to identify possible heritage buildings and cottages in the Beach. A volunteer committee "with some of the older folks" has been formed, she said.
