RCMP Staff Sergeant Kevin Weber, the Detachment Commander at the Warman
Detachment, met with Town Council on March 12th. To help address the issue of RCMP visibility, all new officers assigned to the Delisle Detachment will have to begin their shift by first reporting to the Delisle Detachment in person. The
stenographer position is scheduled to become a government employee position effective April 1st with the office hours slightly changing. Sergeant Weber encouraged Council and the general public to contact him or the RCMP whenever there are issues. If people do not contact the RCMP when there are issues, the RCMP are simply not aware of the problem and are therefore unable to allocate
resources or manpower to the problem or the area. The RCMP can be contacted at 306-493-3240 (Delisle), 306-975-1670 (Warman) or 306-310-7267 (Regina).
2013 GENERAL REVALUATION
Assessment notices were mailed out to all town
property owners on February 21st. Generally
speaking, assessment values have doubled in
Delisle in the last four years. These values loosely
correspond to market sales over the same four year
The Saskatchewan Assessment Management
Agency (SAMA) is responsible for determining the
assessed values. The town and province will use
these values in levying municipal and school taxes
respectively. To remain revenue neutral, the town
will have to reduce their mill rate by approximately
The province is responsible for setting the school
mill rate. Because the assessments throughout the
province have increased significantly, the school
mill rate should come down. However, there are
strong indications from the province that more
money is needed for education. Do not be
surprised to see an increase in school property
taxes. The school mill rate will be
announced at the same time as the provincial
For now, your best option is to access the SAMA
website at www.sama.sk.ca and click on the
SAMAView link. From there, you can compare
your property value with other properties in your
community or other communities.
