  • FGG Inspections (Ed Gulliver) - Rebar for the foundation and cedar shakes for the roof (to be replacing the metal roof)

Request to Circulate Survey for Research Project Involving Private Well Users in Saskatchewan

Dr. Sarah Dickson-Anderson (McMaster University) and I would appreciate your help in recruiting survey participants as part of a research project exploring knowledge, experiences, and practices of private well users in Saskatchewan. The project has been approved by the University of Saskatchewan (certificate #2029). Resort Villages have been identified as key private well users in the province. As such, we would appreciate it if you could share the link to the survey online, through a newsletter, or through social media. The survey can be accessed through an url or QR code. The attached pdf has a hyperlink to the url and the image has the QR code embedded for your convenience.

The preamble to the survey contains the information letter, which I can also share directly with you, if you would like.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Thanks in advance for considering this request. 

Yours,

 Corinne Schuster-Wallace Ph.D.

Any ratepayer can access the Village tractor and trailer, with a few conditions.  It is to be used for transporting logs, brush, flowers, light loads of soil, etc.  Nothing heavy.  It will be operated by any of the Councillors, the Mayor or the Maintenance Foreman.  It can be scheduled with a phone call to any of the Councillors or the Mayor.  Cost is $60/hr with a minimum of a one hour charge.

 


 

If anyone has any golf balls that are not suitable for the course, we could use them for the mini-golf.  Thanks! 

 

The Village has a dunk tank which is available for rent.  Price is $100.00/weekend.  Contact the village office to make arrangements to have this fun item available for your event!
