Town of Gull Lake
Mobile Paving will be in town next Thursday to commence paving Rodger Aldag Avenue from Main Street to 5th Street. Crews will return at a later date to pave Queens Avenue from 2nd street to 5th street. Additionally, concrete curb and gutter will be installed on the east side of Queens Avenue between 2nd Street and 3rd street. Street repairs will also be made on the following streets:
- Lake Avenue by the Gull Lake Recreation Complex
- Price Avenue by the Kreative Kidz Early Learning Centre
- Grey Street by the Gull Lake Special Care Centre
Mobile Paving was the successful tender of the paving project with a bid of $322,982.00.
Last year Council received a request from Mr. Tom Frook to proclaim August 9th of each year, “Captain Keith Mirau Day” in the Town of Gull Lake. Captain Mirau was killed in a Syrian missile strike in 1974 along with 8 other airmen. It was because of this tragedy that the National Peacekeepers’ Day came into being. The proclamation was made last year proclaiming August 9th of each year as, “Captain Keith Mirau Day” in Gull Lake.
Earlier this year, Town Council consulted with the Gull Lake Legion about placing a commemorative plaque at the Cenotaph with the proclamation engraved on it. Town Council has approved the purchase of the plaque, and it will be placed in the Cenotaph in time for, “Captain Kieth Miaru Day.”
On Captain Kieth Miaru Day all citizens are called upon to recognize the efforts of all those who serve our country with honour.
