SASKTIP congratulates the RM of Excel

“At the spring convention in 1998 a motion was passed that all Rural Municipalities voluntarily support SASKTIP with a yearly donation of $100.
To date approximately 130 RM’s are faithful yearly supporters and these RM’s are as a group the largest continuing supporter of SASKTIP and are very integral to the continuing operation of SASKTIP.
Each year at the spring convention a framed print is donated by Ducks Unlimited to be given to a paid up RM.  This year’s winner is the RM of Excel and SASKTIP wants to express thanks for the RM of Excel’s continuing support!
SASKTIP is a natural resources and environmental reward program that has had a direct working relationship with some RM’s who have experienced the dumping of garbage or hazardous substances or the illegal hunting of big game animals and other crimes.
To report a violation phone the Turn In Poacher (TIP) line, 1-800-667-7561 or SaskTel cellular #5555.
We look forward to continuing to work together with all the RM’s in Saskatchewan!”

“Although most of the province is looking at a near normal situation, the Saskatoon, North Battleford and Prince Albert regions could again be facing some significant challenges with the threat of higher than normal water levels,” Minister responsible for Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “The Water Security Agency is continuing to monitor the situation and will have more detailed information in early March.”
