Neepawa council, at its last meeting before the election, appointed Colleen Synchyshyn as the CAO. Synchyshyn had been Assistant CAO under Richard Beachey, who resigned last month. She had been acting CAO since Beachey’s resignation. 

Earlier this year, council had listed various parcels of land with Remax Prairie Mountain and offers to purchase on two of the listed properties were brought to council. Lots 13, 14 and south half of 15 at 447 Tupper Avenue had an offer from Kris McKinnon and Denis Saquet for $18,500. The second parcel, commonly know as the old feed mill property, on Dominion Road received an offer from Wahoski Mechanical for $42,500. CAO Synchyshyn said that both properties had been listed for quite a while and both the offers were much higher than previous offers. Council approved the sale of both pieces of land.

A third piece of land at  77 Currie had not been listed but an offer of $1 brought by the realtor was rejected by council as they felt the land should, as was recommended by Synchyshyn, be listed so everyone could get a chance to purchase it if they so wished.
