Matt Stepp was introduced as Estevan's new building official at Monday night's city council meeting.

Stepp grew up in Torquay and moved to Estevan when he was about 14. He's been working in the construction industry for nearly a decade, and has been a journeyman since 2020.

Mayor Roy Ludwig said he's looking forward to having Stepp on the City's staff.

"I know that there's a lot of good people coming out of the Torquay area," said Ludwig. "That's one of our satellite communities. A lot of good people in Torquay."

"Welcome, and we look forward to working with you," said Councillor Rebecca Foord.
