Kindersley's elected officials held a special council meeting on Monday in the Kindersley council chambers.
 
The meeting began with a delegation from Eco-Growth about the possibility of using a biofuel energy program for the new Kindersley Aquatic Centre.

The presentation was made by Eco-Growth president Scott Kerr and Glen Smith, vice-president of business development.

“We’re looking at this as an option,” Mayor Rod Perkins said and gave an update about how the pool project is going before the presentation. “The shell of the building is up and the main pool is pretty much complete, so workers are making progress on the construction.”

Council is looking at ways to reduce the operational costs for the new aquatic centre and asked how this technology could help.

The presentation showed how the technology could divert organic waste from the landfill to heat the pool.
 
Although Eco-Growth is based in Calgary, Kerr spoke about their Saskatchewan roots as he is from Foam Lake and Smith is originally from Prince Albert.
 
The technology is being used in Saskatchewan at the Northwest YMCA in Regina.

The project saves the YMCA aproximetly $2,500 each month on natural gas costs and is expected to increase the facility's lifespan and divert waste from the landfill.
