Welcome to the RM of Mervin No. 499

FIRE BAN IN EFFECT FOR THE R.M. OF MERVIN

Effective April 9, 2021 , the R.M. of Mervin No. 499 has issued a full fire ban municipality wide. There shall be no open fires due to the very dry conditions with low humidity. The ban continues until such time that conditions improve and the R.M. Council determines the ban can be lifted. Our website is updated whenever a ban is put into effect or lifted.

A fire ban includes: fireworks, burning barrels, smudge, recreational fires and propane fire pits with an open flame higher than 2 inches. When fire burns out of control in our R.M., extra demand is placed on staff and our volunteer fire fighters, creating large costs. The municipality will aggressively pursue recovery from individuals who light fires during a ban.

Permitted Uses Include:

  • Barbecues (propane, gas, briquette & wood pellets)
  • Tabletop Propane heaters and propane heaters with a maximum flame height of 2 inches.
  • Patio Heaters
  • Completely enclosed wood pellet fueled fire pits.

Should you have any questions regarding the fire ban, please contact our office.

NAME THAT ROAD WINNER – ROOSTER ROAD

Submission from Nik Matvenko:
“Growing up just minutes from this road (Kivimaa beach) it holds a lot of great memories to me. My grandfather (Charlie Kivimaa) previously owned a piece of land across from Eaket’s pasture. Where we would spend countless hours gathering fire wood. It was my main biking trail to visit my buddies the (Mitchell bro’s). I worked from age 13 till my graduation for Keith Mitchell(rooster) at blueberry. We would pick rocks in a pasture by hand along this very same road! We even cleared a fire guard along this road cutting trees piling them up and burning them. Rooster showed me the feeling of putting in a day of good honest hard work. Rooster has been a huge part of this area/community for over 35 years. I feel this road would best take on the name “rooster road” Thanks for the opportunity to honour a legend.”

 

Congratulations Nik on your winning entry. The RM will be ordering a sign to place at the road turnoff, we will notify you when the sign is up. You can also stop by the office to claim your reward for your winning entry. 😀
