NEW CEMETERY PLAQUE
Potter’s fields originated from biblical times, but are commonly known as areas where those who couldn't afford to buy a grave would be buried (sometimes called the “friendless poor”).
Today, the Town has endeavoured to remind us, that even though there are many unmarked graves in our cemetery, we haven't forgotten them.
Shortly, Lee's Tree Care will be in Herbert to do regular maintenance on Town trees. but as part of their annual visit, they will also tend to residents' trees upon request.
If you have trees on your property that require maintenance or removal, just call us at the office & we'll add your name to the Tree List.
The arborist will call you to make possible arrangements &/or provide you with a quote for the service required.

How Property Assessment Works in SK
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.
For a better understanding, click on the following link: Assessment Appeals Guide in Saskatchewan for Citizens
All property must be assessed. If you have property within your municipality that does not have an assessed value, you will need to contact the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA).
