Welcome to the RM of Mervin No. 499

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive range of municipal services for the benefit of our ratepayers and organized and un-organized hamlets.

We accomplish our mission by ensuring we have a strong, effective staff and council governing the municipality and setting the strategic direction to keep our municipality viable now and in the future.

DECOMMISSIONING WELLS

The North Saskatchewan River Basin Council would like to promote a very important part of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership Funding which benefits us all by having clean, safe water wells in our area.

We all know the risks that old abandoned wells have in a community and to our underground water resources.

The CAP program will fund 90% of the eligible cost to decommission abandoned wells. It is a pre-approval application and they are able to come out and measure the wells and help with the necessary paperwork.

RM’s are also able to apply for this funding and help producers that don’t meet the criteria of having the $50,000 gross farm income.

They would like to promote and make aware of this opportunity and hopefully be approved to have these wells taken care of by fall.

SaskAlert APP

 

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency is encouraging people to download the SaskAlert App so they can receive critical COVID-19 information in a timely manner. The app also allows people to choose how and when to hear the emergency alerts.

As your municipality/First Nation Community is participating in SaskAlert, you are encouraged to download the app.

The more people that have the app, the more efficient we can be with targeting people in a specific area, including your jurisdiction, that might require emergency information.
