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.


Effective April 23, 2019, 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 in 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 fires burn 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.
