News from the Town Office That was a fast summer, it’s hard to believe the pool is closed and we’re all gearing up for fall activities. The late rain made the lawns look better than they have all summer.
Harassment Training for Town Committees—We will be soon setting the schedule for the harassment training. Remember, all of the Town recognized community organizations’ members will be required to attend harassment training provided by the Council this fall. The presidents of each organization will be sent an email. Anyone else who would be interested in attending may leave their name and phone number at the town office to be contacted when the sessions are scheduled.
The Costs of fighting a fire are increasing —With costs increasing in a variety of areas, Council has learned that, if the R.M. of Blucher pumper truck is called to support your fire, it will result in an increased charge from the R.M. of Blucher to fight your fire. Take a look at your home insurance, to make sure that the charges of the fire departments who may be helping fight your fire, such as Blucher-Lost River Fire District, Colonsay, or Young will be covered. We recommend carrying at least $10,000.00 in fire fighting insurance on your policy.
Can people walk the sidewalk in front of your home, or is it covered by your trees and shrubs? - We note that many people have made the effort to cut back their trees and hedges, but there are still places where walking the sidewalk is difficult. Please take care of this problem before winter comes. Remember front hedges are to be no more than a meter high.
Are your Garbage & Recycle Bins cracked? Missing a wheel? — 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.
Redbird infrastructure issues —If you have sink holes, damaged boxes or other issues with the fiber internet installation in your area, please call the office, and we will add it to the list. We call them out when we have a few areas for them to repair.
Do you use wipes for personal care? —Wipes in the pipes are not good for our sanitary sewer system, even if they do say flushable. They do not dissolve enough before getting to our pumps. To prevent back ups in your home, or the town pumps, please toss them into the trash.
Recreation Facilities Maintenance — We welcome Kent Dignean to this position and wish him every success with our community.
