Snow Removal — Please keep obstructions off streets to assist with snow removal. Keep
vehicles and trailers to off street parking, especially after a snowfall. The snow removal policy
is for primary areas first, followed by residential streets and lastly, back lanes. When you see
our equipment moving snow, please wait for them to finish, before passing the tractor or bobcat.
Pet Licenses and Business Licenses expired on December 31st. Remember to stop by

check in with the staff at the office to get more information. Licenses were due by January 31.
Remember our bylaw has a four pet limit.
Water & Sewer — During 2023, sewer clogs caused problems in excess of our budgeted
amount. This has been a consistent problem the last few years. Wipes should never go into the
toilet. As this is becoming a regular problem, Council will be considering raising the cost of the
sewer section of the utility bills to compensate for these ongoing costs. As well, we are looking
at a water rate increase, due to Sask Water increasing their rates again this year.
Building Information — If you are altering your home or garage, there may be permits
required. Please ensure that you get your permit in advance of starting your project.
Loraas Bins — If they are cracked or have wheel problems, please let us know at the Town
Office and we will get a replacement bin to you. In order to preserve our pavement, please place
your black and blue carts right at the edge of the pavement.
