Resort Village of Mistusinne - recipient of the 2019 "Regional Cooperation"
Saskatchewan Municipal Award
The Resort Village of Mistusinne was recognized at the SUMA Convention, February 4, 2020 as a recipient of the “Regional Cooperation” Saskatchewan Municipal Award. Mayor Lloyd Montgomery and Administrator Yvonne Jess were in attendance to accept this award.
The Regional Cooperation award was for our participation in the Regional Asset Management and Group Learning project, along with the Villages of Broderick, Conquest, Elbow, Glenside, Kenaston, Loreburn, Strongfield, and Beechy, the Towns of Central Butte, Dundurn, and Hanley, and the R.M.’s of Loreburn and Fertile Valley. As a group we developed a regional cooperation framework to provide each municipal council with a plan to forecast asset replacement investments, to better understand revenue sources and suitability, and to communicate more effectively with community members around the state of municipal assets.
Watch for the award video coming soon, to learn a little more about this project!
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING AGGRESSIVE COYOTE PAIR - September 6, 2019
The Conservation Officer who is working out of Douglas Park has just informed the Resort Village of Mistusinne that they will be closing the Trans Canada Trail between Mistusinne and the Park campground due to the presence of a mated pair of territorial Coyotes that appear to be protecting their den. There will be signs posted at both gates but the Coyotes appear to be in the area around the first bluff of trees upon entering the park from Mistusinne.
There were two instances last weekend of Coyotes being aggressive towards dogs, one on the trail and one on the beach in the Park.
Please avoid the area, especially with dogs, for the next while.
