L. Ryan Domotor’s Retirement

It is with regret that the R.M. of Mervin accepts our Chief Administrative Officer of 26 years, Ryan Domotor’s, retirement notice. The R.M. Staff as well as the R.M. Council would like to wish Ryan all the best in his new endeavor in Politics.

Ryan has been a valued asset to the R.M. of Mervin through his dedication to his job and his knowledge of the industry and he will be missed. His past staff and Council have enjoyed working with Ryan and learning from him over the years. He has left a legacy through his shared knowledge and skill set from not only those who worked with him as staff or council, but also through the help he was always willing to share with other administrators and RMs looking for guidance.

Have you ever wanted to name an RM Road? Now’s your chance!

The RM of Mervin is currently seeking road name submissions as part of a friendly competition to name a stretch of road off the 795 Grid (Turtle Lake Grid). Section of Road is shown in picture.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the competition, and submissions can be made by emailing rm499@rmofmervin.com. All entries must include an explanation as to why the name was submitted for consideration.

The competition will close on Monday, December 7th, and our Council will review all submissions and select a winner.

The public will then be notified, and the winner will be announced on Facebook as well as the RM’s website. The winner will get to see their road name permanently placed on that road as well as receive a small prize from the RM Council in recognition.
