Good Afternoon Mistusinne!

 

Due to an overwhelming request for tax notices to not be mailed out, I have not mailed any out yet. They will be available in the office for pick up tomorrow from 10-2.
 
I have boat launch stickers here if you have not picked yours up yet.
 
If you have a second golf cart, we have the stickers ready for pick up here.
 
Do not forget to get your golf memberships, it is beautiful weather for a round.
 
If anyone has anything that needs to go to the next council meeting (Sat, July 23) please get that to me ASAP. Wednesday is the last day I can accept new agenda items BUT please do not leave permit requests that late.
 
A friendly reminder to please not park directly next to the boat launch. Please park in the parking area to allow everyone easy access to get onto the lake and wow what a weekend to be out on the lake.
 
Please drive those motorized rec vehicles with care, and in designated areas, let us see if we can have a ZERO complaint weekend. If we succeed there just might be a reward in store.
 
Having friends or family out to enjoy the summer? Do not forget to purchase a Green Space permit if you will be temporarily parking accommodations on the green space.

 Message From Council - April 8, 2020

With the spring season upon us, and the unprecedented times we are living in, we would like to wish everyone good health and safety.

Council has made a couple of changes to help protect our citizens.

First, the playground is closed.

Secondly, the golf course, by provincial mandate, must remain closed.

Please respect these restrictions.

The public health authority has also recommended that if we do not have to travel that we stay home.

We have those in our village that have chosen to self isolate here, many due to being at increased risk. We all should respect this choice and limit any possibility of infection.

It is normal for each of us, when seeing friends that we perhaps have not been in contact with for an extended period of time, to want to visit and catch up. Please do not visit in groups or have close contact with anyone outside of those who live in the same household.

Wherever you are during this pandemic please follow the guidelines set out by the health authority.

If you show symptoms or have been out of the country, it is mandatory to isolate in your home for a period of at least 14 days.

For others, wash your hands often and practice social distancing.

It is councils wish that all remain healthy through this pandemic. Saskatchewan is the best place to be, both at times like this, and at all times. Please care for yourself and others.

If there are any other changes that affect our village, we will continue to inform you.

Mayor and Council of Resort Village of Mistusinne

  


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.

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.


Canada Day 2019!  – (submitted by Carol Dorward, chairperson)

The parade was led by RCMP Constable Beriault, Piper Brett Stinson, Drummer, Dillon Stinson, followed by decorated bicycles, quads, golf carts, floats & pets on leash.  A special thanks to Moose Jaw Shrine Club for bringing their train to the parade. 

Following the parade everyone moved to the Gathering Area to participate in games, face painting and cupcake decorating for the children while parents and grandparents cheered them on.  Everyone enjoyed the barbecue and socializing.  Musical entertainment was provided by the McIntyre Sisters, who also led us in the singing of our National Anthem.  Thanks to Mayor Montgomery for being M.C.
