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.
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.

Town of Delisle
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).
