ANNUAL WATERWORKS REPORT
The 2013 Annual Waterworks Information for the Town of Delisle, as required under The Municipalities Regulations, is provided on the following document:

2013 Annual Waterworks Report

 

 

ANNUAL WATER QUALITY AND COMPLIANCE REPORT
The Town of Delisle’s 2012 Water Quality & Compliance report is now available and provided on the link below.

2013 Drinking Water Quality and Compliance Notice

 

 

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 period.

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 50%.

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 budget.

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.


 

 

Public Notice
The Council of the Town of Delisle is considering adopting the WaterWolf Growth Management Plan as their District Plan and their Official Community Plan  pursuant to Sections 102 and 36 respectively of the Planning and Development Act, 2007.  Council is also considering adopting a zoning bylaw pursuant to Section 76 of the Planning and Development Act, 2007.   Both plans and the zoning bylaw will be adopted according to the public participation Sections (207 – 212) of the Planning and Development Act, 2007.  For a copy of the WaterWolf Growth Management Plan and all applicable maps please visit www.waterwolf.org  or click on the links below.  The proposed zoning bylaw is also available on the links below.  All documents and maps are also available at cost at the Delisle Town Office during regular business hours.
 
The purpose of the WaterWolf Growth Management Plan is to enable and guide growth and change throughout the region. Through regional policies it will also reduce land use uncertainty and promote development. The zoning bylaw is the legal and administrative means of implementing the Official Community Plan. It also allows council to establish zoning districts and to develop certain standards within each district. A public hearing will be held at 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at the Delisle Town Office to address comments and concerns regarding the adoption of both plans and the bylaw.  Council will also consider written comments received at the hearing, or delivered to the undersigned at the Delisle Town Office before the hearing.

RCMP HIGHLIGHTS
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).

 

 

BYLAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER
The Town of Delisle has hired Ron Klassen as a bylaw enforcement officer. Mr. Klassen has 10 years experience as an Auxiliary RCMP Constable. To start with, the bylaw enforcement officer will focus on issues such as parking and other vehicle infractions & dog complaints. As time progresses, Mr. Klassen will become more involved with nuisance and other miscellaneous issues. To contact the bylaw enforcement officer, phone 321-2617.

 

 

RCMP DETACHMENT HOURS
The Delisle RCMP Detachment is now staffed every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a clerical person to perform services such as security checks, handling inquiries, public information, etc. RCMP officers may not necessarily be available during these hours.

 

 

DELISLE CROPS FOR COMMUNITY
On Sept. 10th the wheat crop on the 193 acres east of town was harvested. The final yield of 59.4 bu. per acre raised a total of $68,623.43! This money will be utilized to improve recreation facilities in the community. If you have a project idea or need information about applying for funding, please contact Shawn Colborn at (306) 381-3335.

 

 

NORTH END COMMUNITY PARK
Playground equipment for the new park located at the north end of Valleyview Drive was installed Oct. 4th. The park would not be possible without the efforts of many volunteers within our community who did the construction work and also applied for grants and were very successful! Thank you to The Dakota Dunes Development Corporation who donated $22,500 and the Community Initiatives Fund who donated $13,000. That money will be used in purchasing of the playground equipment. The Town of Delisle has also contributed $8,500 to be used for the purchase of the turf, u/g sprinklers, topsoil, trees and other site material. Also, a special thank you to the following for their generous “in-kind” donations: Link’s Backhoe& Skidsteer Service, Klassen Trenching, Tuff Turf, Eljay Irrigation, Agrium & JABA Construction.

Recycling material is to be loosely placed in the recycling cart (no need to package). Any cart not adhering to these rules risks not being picked up!

TRANSFER STATION ACCEPTANCE OF RUBBLE
Due to increasing environmental regulations, the practice of burying rubble at the Transfer Station has been immediately discontinued. What this now means is rubble like gyproc and glass will now have to go into the Loraas container and there will be a charge of $60/half ton truck box or prorated accordingly. Rubble like asphalt and cement will still be accepted at no charge provided they are separated from each other as well as all other material. Asphalt and cement will each have their own separate stockpile and the material will eventually be crushed and reused as road material. Since no more material will be buried on site, the province has designated this facility as a “transfer station” only.
