FIRE BAN IN EFFECT AS AT 2:30 P.M. APRIL 8, 2024

 

 We are all praying for rain, but preparing for another dry year and the fire risk that comes with it.

The RVKMB Volunteer Fire Department held a training session in conjuction with the Turtleford Fire Department on Wildland Fire Suppression Awareness on March 23rd and 24th here in the Village.  It was attended by 16 RVKMB Firefighters.  It was presented by the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency.  Thank you to all our first responders for your dedication and hard work.

We have also had to cut down some trees to make sure the fire trucks can reach all Village properties.  Heartbreaking, but necessary.  The trees cut were on Lakeshore Drive from Archie Clampitt Drive to Mattila Trail and up Kivimaa Drive from Mattila Trail.  Also, there are 3 dead trees in Zulynik Place by a power line that have to be removed.  Fortunately, the Village has ordered 250 trees to be planted on Village property to keep our Village green and beautiful.  Please contact the office if you are available to help plant.  We don't have an exact date yet, but will keep you informed.

The Turtle Lake Watershed Authority has stated that the two biggest threats to our lake are 

1. Sewage draining into the lake

2.  Fertilizer contaminating the lake

As defined under the Saskatchewan Onsite Wastewater Disposal Guide, sewage is defined as "any liquid waste other than clear-water waste or storm water.  Sewage is the composite liquid and water-carried wastes associated with the use of water for cooking, cleaning, washing, hygiene, sanitation or other domestic purposes; includes greywater but does not include liquid waste from industrial processes."

We love our lake.  Please think before disposing of any liquid other than into your septic system.  And do you really need to fertilize your lawn?

 


 

 

             


 

Effective July 27, 2022 ALL quads, side by sides and golf carts operating within the Village will require a numbered tag (plate).  Tags are available at the office at a cost of $20.00 each.  If you have multiple recreational vehicles you will receive the same number on each tag for each vehicle.  These tags (plates) are for the sole purpose of registering your vehicle at the village office. Should you have any questions  please reach out to any member of our council.  Contact information is listed on the "Council" page of our website.


As many of us will soon be moving our boats it is important to be aware of the regulations regarding Drain Plugs, please see the information below and click on the 'Saskatchewan Boaters' link for further details.

"As of 2020, it is mandatory to remove all watercraft drain plugs during transportation, you could face a fine for failing to do so. Saskatchewan continues to be free of AIS. Ensuring that watercraft owners stop at open inspection stations, even if you were previously inspected, will help the province retain this critically important status."

The 2021 Census Report has arrived


 

The Village will require a Local Authority Freedom of Information Policy (LAFOIP) information request form for any information other than that normally disclosed by the Village.  There will be a filing fee of $20.00 and a $40.00 per hour (3 hour minimum) charge for administration time which must be paid before work will begin  The Village will issue a refund for any unused time.  This will ensure that the user of the information is responsible for the cost, rather than the village as a whole subsidizing a ratepayer request.  The attached form below must be included with the request.

LAFOIP request for information

 


 

Residents are continuing to feed foxes in the village, and as Saskatchewan Environment considers this a self-inflicted problem, they will not contribute to a solution.  Feeding foxes should be stopped as soon as possible for the following reasons:

  • Although rare, foxes are reservoirs for rabies.  If you see a fox acting aggressively or looking ill, do not approach!
  • Foxes will attack small dogs and carry diseases such as mange that can be spread to domestic pets.
  • It's cruel.  Foxes can rapidly become dependent on human food sources and will expand their population to take advantage of it.  If you feed intermitantly, you are just causing hardship for them.  

 

Vandalism is a problem in the Village.  Effective June 3, 2021 surveillance cameras have been installed at the Mini Golf.
