EMERGENCY MAINTENANCE NUMBER

November 1st, 2022
8:30am
4:30am

The Town has now gone live with an EMERGENCY Maintenance telephone number.
CALL 639-926-7100

This is only meant for reporting a serious issue; for example, your basement is filling up with water & you haven't the means to shut the water off; the shut-off cannot be located, or the valve has seized making it impossible to shut the water off. This would be considered an emergency for Town staff. Staff would turn the water off at the curb to stop water from running into the house until the situation is resolved.

It is not meant for anyone with sewer issues. You'll need to call a sewer service or a plumber.

How Property Assessment Works in SK

4:30pm

Click on the highlighed link to view SAMA's informational pamphlet regarding: How Property Assessment Works in Saskatchewan. It clarifies SAMA's role in the assessment process.

Once the municipal assessment roll has been completed, homeowners are given the opportunity to appeal a property assessment. However, it's important to understand that the appeal process is about appealing an error in the assessed value of your property or classification of your property; homeowner's cannot appeal their tax levy.
