As part of on-going efforts to guide SARM's advocacy work, the SARM Policy Department is asking for input on Saskatchewan's agricultural insurance programming by completing a survey. The purpose of the survey is to gather feedback on current programming and to learn more about the agricultural insurance issues that matter most.

Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FBQJ77Y and complete the survey by Thursday, August 15, 2019.

Thank you.

This new network will allow Saskatchewan residents to receive credible, accurate and timely crime prevention information directly from their local RCMP detachment. When a detachment becomes aware of an incident or crime, they can issue an advisory via the system and local residents who have signed up for the program will become aware of what happened within minutes.

Only those who have signed up to receive notifications from RCMP detachments in southern Saskatchewan will receive advisories.

Signing up to be part of the network is free and only takes a few minutes. You choose which RCMP detachment area(s) you want to receive notifications from and how you want to receive them, whether it be via text message, email, phone call or through the mobile app. Visit SARM.ca, SUMA.org or click here to proceed to the Saskatchewan Crime Watch website to sign up.

MMSW Recycle Poster 2

The R.M. landfill has become an unregulated bin site and is now open to R.M. ratepayers only. Instead of putting garbage in pits, garbage will now be collected in bins which will then be transferred to the landfill in Regina. The recycling bins will remain in place for ratepayers to utilize.

The hours of operation will remain the same: Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The following items are not allowed in the garbage bins: asphalt shingles, cement, chemical containers, dead animals, electronics (recyclable at SARCAN), grain, hazardous waste, house demolition, liquid domestic sewage, new house construction garbage, petroleum by-products, propane tanks, railway ties, recyclable materials, refrigeration units, tires, and wire of any description.
