CLUBROOT SURVEYING

*** Update to the Clubroot Survey. Please see that map and links provided below to find out more about the Clubroot Survey that was done.
PLEASE SEE THE 2018 Clubroot Bylaw
August 16, 2018

The Ministry of Agriculture, with the support of Sask Canola and Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities will be conducting an extensive clubroot survey this year. 1800 fields across the province with a high risk will be selected at random and surveyed by a Pest Control Officer employed by the Ministry and Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corp., Plant Health Officer contracted by SARM will also be assisting in surveying, and will be able to help with clubroot regulation.

These officers have full authority to enter upon any land to inspect for the presence of a regulated pest, collect specimens (Plant and Soil) and to investigate and deal with management of pests.

This is to make you aware these Officers will be in the area, and to not be alarmed.

Early detection is important to ensure proactive management and prevent yield loss. The Ministry encourages farmers to take an active roll in the management of clubroot on their property.

If you have any concerns, please contact the office at (306) 825-2610.

FREE FARM SAFETY COURSE

On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth.  (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)

The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.

The goal of this 3-hour training program is to reduce the number of these injuries and fatalities.

On this page are a variety of small linked graphics that may be used to share this program.

Thank you for working with us to achieve a safe Saskatchewan.

Stay Well – Stay Safe!

 

 

SAND SCREENINGS

The Municipality is selling reject sand or screenings from the Priest Pit to our ratepayers at a cost of $3.50 per yard, plus mileage at a rate of $1.50 per cubic yard per loaded mile in a tandem truck with a minimum of 12 yards per load, and $1.00 per cubic yard per loaded mile in a semi-truck with a minimum 24 yards per load effective immediately. Delivery of sand will be done at the discretion of the Foreman and on the availability of staff based on the priorities for labor at that time.  Deliveries may not be made until the ratepayer signs a waiver releasing the municipality from liability, and prepays for the sand.

SPECIAL EVENTS PERMITS

Please note that effective December 1, 2016, the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Association has changed its rules regarding liquor permits for public events. Although the Hillmond Arena is operated by a group of volunteers, the title to the property is in the name of the Municipality. The new rules make the R.M responsible for issuing approvals on liquor permits for certain functions due to this name on title. A copy of the detailed rules are attached.

If you are planning any sort of function that may require municipal approval, please submit your request to us no less than 30 days prior to the event. We apologize for this new inconvenience, but we are obliged to follow provincial regulations in order to keep the liability of ratepayers and our Hillmond volunteer group minimized. http://hillmondreddenarena.com/
