The municipality will provide lane maintenance to ratepayers when operators have the time to perform this extra duty. Lane maintenance includes grader and mower work. The R.M. provides a time credit of 1 hour per ratepayer/residence per year for this work, any work exceeding 1 hour will be charged accordingly. No custom work shall be provided to anyone who is in tax arrears with this municipality. R.M. graders are not to perform any custom work on private land other than lanes. If such work is requested by a ratepayer, approval must first be obtained from a Councillor. Custom work requests are limited to a 2 hour maximum (Councillor approval required for any work exceeding 2 hours.)
$ 150.00/hour for ratepayers
$ 250.00/hour for others
$150.00/hour for ratepayers only

Rat poison is available in our office free of charge to our ratepayers.
Unfortunately, Liquid Strychnine (gopher poison) is no longer available.
We recommend that you leave these issues to our municipality's Pest Control Officer, Terry Barnes: (306)483-7714.
His services are free to ratepayers!
Currently, the main issue within our municipality is Leafy Spurge development. Other, less problematic weeds identified are Scentless Chamomile, Purple Loosestrife and Absinthe. Our municipality's Weed Inspector, Dorothee Corrigan, is helping to take care of these problems. If you have any concerns, problem areas on your land or additional weeds to be documented, please get in touch with our office. We may be able to help with some costs!
