DEVELOPMENT & BUILDING PERMITS REQUIRED

Development permits are required for developments within the municipality (construction of a dwelling, shop, garage, accessory building(s), doing renovations and/or moving on an RTM, mobile home, etc). It is beneficial to you, as a ratepayer, to have the required application to the Development Officer at least one month prior to your projected start date, as there may be unforeseen issues that arise. The development officer has the authority to issue development permits for permitted uses; discretionary uses have to be approved by motion of council. In order for a development application to be considered by council, the application shall be submitted at least three weeks prior to the meeting date.

COMMUNITY WATER WELLS

Community water wells are located at Pt. SW 35-53-24-W3, east, off of Highway #21 North and Pt SE-32-53-22-W3 (west/behind the St. Walburg Community Cemetery).   If you have been, or if you intend to utilize water from these wells, the municipality advises that water from both wells is considered non-potable (unsafe for drinking).


SPEED WHEN PASSING MUNICIPAL WORKERS

Signs have been erected at many areas throughout the municipality indicating that speed must be reduced to 60 km/hour (or less) when passing municipal workers (either working on the right of way or operating their equipment). Please ensure this is done for the safety of our workers.


DITCHES

If you notice any rocks in ditches that need to be removed or any signs that are down or appear to be missing, please give the Public Works Department a call.
