|Fires in town|
|Updated January 2012|
When paving of town streets was undertaken the paved area of most streets was intended as driving lanes. It was intended that vehicles were to be parked off the pavement edge. Residents are reminded to park their vehicles off the pavement edge, or at least as close to the edge of the pavement as practical, to ensure clear traffic flow.
Update March 12, 2004
Due to volume demand on the water system, it is requested that watering
EAST SIDE RESIDENTS (GRIFFIN STREET EAST)
Watering of lawns and gardens can take place on Tuesdays,
WEST SIDE RESIDENTS (GRIFFIN STREET WEST)
Watering of lawns and gardens can take place on Mondays,
No watering of lawns or gardens should take place on Sundays to give demands on our system a rest. Watering should also be done at times other than In the heat of the day. Residents that have new grass are exempt.
When major water breaks occur on a weekend, we do our best to deal with an emergency to safeguard our infrastructure and protect our water supply. We then deal with notification when our office is opened. If you have further questions or concerns regarding the water shut off please contact the town office at 306-372-4218
Pet owners have responsibilities. Dogs are licensed for the period January 1 to December 31 of each and every year. Numerous campaniles have been received with respect to dogs running at large and defecating on property owned by individuals other than their owners. In accordance with Town bylaw, please note the following responsibilities of dog owners:
Numerous complaints have also been received with respect to cats running at large. Please ensure that your cat is kept under control at all times so that the Town is not put in the position of having to take action to regulate cats.
Pursuant to Town bylaw,
To ensure that your are in compliance with town legislation, please check with the Town Office well in advance of beginning construction or alterations. Building permits must be approved at a meeting of Council before any work can commence. In the event that construction has commenced and the Town finds itself in the position where it cannot approve a permit for noncompliance with town zoning or building bylaws, the Town may obtain an order forcing town bylaw compliance; costs of such enforcement may be added to taxes payable on the subject property.
$23 will be added to your quarterly utility bill.
Regular garbage pick up is Tuesday mornings.
Compostibles, leaves, grass, etc, is to be placed in clear plastic bags at the front of residences in order that the town crew can pick them up for delivery to the landfill. The following are the dates that Town crew will pick up Compostibles material in the fall on September 19 & October 3. For disposal of compost at other times you can contact the town Office. If anyone wishes to pick up compost material for their farms or gardens, contact the Town Office at 372-4218. Please remember to include only Compostibles materials in your clear plastic bags to be picked up. Tree branches & sticks, stones and regular garbage are no Compostibles.
The Public Works Department encourages residents to dispose of used oil by delivering it to the oil tank located beside the Public Works Shop situated on Strathcona Street.
We have had many requests to open the landfill at hours other than regular landfill hours. Meeting these requests has increased the landfill operator costs to the Town and, henceforth, there shall be a surcharge of $30.00 per hour, with a minimum 3 hours,for those who wish the landfill operator to attend at the landfill at other than the hours listed above.
Town crews will continue to pick up composting material from yards around town until there is no more debris to be collected.
We wish to caution all those delivering debris to the landfill site to ensure that your load is secure. The Rural Municipality of Progress has hired students to clean the ditches of the #711 between town and the landfill site and cooperation between the town and rural municipality is difficult when town residents do not respect the rural municipality's desire to maintain the appearance of their roads. Each of us has a responsibility to ensure that we do not leave a string of garbage from town to the landfill site.
Remember - All debris delivered to the landfill must be sorted.
To expedite the delivery of refuse to the landfill, landfill users should sort their materials at home into the following categories:
a) Wood, unpainted and untreated only;
b) Compostibles material, which includes all peelings, garden refuse,
leaves, etc., but does not include containers or bags in which the
material may be delivered to the landfill (If you deliver leaves, etc.
to the landfill in plastic bags or other containers, you must empty
the bags or other containers and place them on the appropriate pile
or in the appropriate area.)
c) Metals, including metal bed frames; and
signs have been erected at the landfill site indicating that there shall be no trespassing and no scavenging. In addition to liability issues that may arise from trespassers or scavengers, we currently have made arrangements with a contractor to remove all metals from our landfill site at no cost to the municipality. This is possible because the contractor receives the benefit of any metals that may be of value. We wish to continue this arrangement and scavengers who remove these types of metals put the Town at risk of losing this contractor and either having to accept the services of contractors who charge for their services or of refusing to accept metals at the landfill site.
Our composting program is enjoying some degree of success as there
is compost ready for use for anyone to pick up at the Landfill. Unfortunately
the compost pile that was started this year will not be useable as
some landfill users have been discarding a large number of items, such
as windshields, lattice and wood into the compost pile. These items
do not break down and renders the other compost not useable as it needs
to be sorted. Please remember to sort your items accordingly. The Landfill
Attendant may inspect your compost to ensure that everything going
into the compost pile can be composted.
**N0 bones, fat or meat please.
BYLAW No. 2003-10
A BYLAW OF THE TOWN OF LUSELAND IN THE PROVINCE OF SASKATCHEWAN, TO PROVIDE A WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM FOR THE RESIDENTS OF LUSELAND AND TO ESTABLISH WASTE MANAGEMENT AREA FOR THE HANDLING AND DISPOSING OF WASTE MATERIAL
The Urban Municipality Act, 1984 Section 141
7. The burning of waste material is strictly prohibited within the municipality.
8. The burning of wood or charcoal in a back yard pit shall be permitted within the incorporated limits of the Town of Luseland where a proper burning facility is provided. The burning facility shall be constructed of metal, brick, concrete or other nonflammable material and so constructed to prevent the spreading of sparks or burning material, and any such use shall be under the direct supervision of an adult owner or occupant of the subject land or buildings.
Local business owners pay property tax on their residential property and on their commercial property. Out-of-town businesses pay absolutely no taxes to the Town of Luseland and, therefore, are required to obtain a Town of Luseland Business Licence.
Section 3. of Town of Luseland Bylaw 2002-1 1, reads in part as follows:
No person shall carry on within the Town any business, industry,
calling or occupation ....
In accordance with Section 4,
Persons required to be licensed under the provisions of this bylaw are those persons carrying on..... businesses, industries, callings or occupations..... who are not operating the businesses from property that is commercially assessed within the Town.
Pursuant to Section 9 (b):
Any person who contravenes any of the provisions of this bylaw or fails to comply therewith shall commit an offense and be liable to the penalty as herein provided.
It is every resident's responsibility, when you hire businesses from out of town, to ensure that those businesses have a town business license. Each business who has obtained a business license has been provided with a license document and must be able to produce it for inspection upon demand.
the Public Works Department requests the following:
1. That snow from driveways and sidewalks be blown or dumped onto your property instead of onto the streets, sidewalks, boulevards or other individual's property;
2. That those removing snow from property adjacent to Grand Avenue refrain from pushing the snow into the ridge piled on the street as foreign objects such as rocks, wood, concrete, etc., have been known to cause serious damage to snow removal equipment; and
3. That those removing snow from Grand Avenue sidewalks in front of businesses throw snow onto the street well away from the gutter as this helps to keep the gutters from becoming hard-packed by parked vehicles before town crew can do final cleanup.
|FIRES IN TOWN: Fires are Permitted in Approved Backyard Fire pits. We do, however, ask that you be careful and keep a hose or water bucket handy in case a spark jumps|
