Frequently Asked Questions
The province has implemented a new civic addressing system. The signs can be ordered through the RM office for $60.00 for the sign and required hardware. The signs must be uniform look and placement so they will be able to be seen easily by emergency services. They will be located at yardsites or active farmyard sites with a high level of farming activity.
Subdivisions will not require the civic addressing signs but are assigned house numbers which must be clearly visible from the street.
The signs will become mandatory in 2020. The RM will also begin the process of signing all Township and Range Roads throughout the RM.
When are the council meetings and are they open to the public?
Council meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of every month unless otherwise posted. All Council meetings are open to the public, if you have an issue you would like council to address please contact the office or your division councilor at least one week prior to the meeting date to be added to the agenda.
