Invasive Plant Control
Currently, the main issue within our municipality is Leafy Spurge & Scentless Chamomile development. Other, less problematic weeds identified are 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!
Rat poison is available in our office free of charge to our ratepayers.
Gopher poison, ZP Rodent Oat Bait, is available in the office at a cost. Partial reimbursement for product purchase is offered through S.A.R.M.’s Gopher Control Program. Please contact our office for more details.
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!
