TOWN OF BREDENBURY NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY 2015

View As PDF

Golf Course:

There was a golf course meeting held on February 11, 2015. Thank you for everyone that attended the meeting. It was very encouraging to see so much support at the meeting encouraging the golf course to remain open. That support hopefully will continue; with many more meetings, financial support, memberships, and fundraising activities that will all be necessary to rebuild the golf course. Watch for posters for future meeting dates.

 

Office Hours:

Regular hours are Mondays and Thursdays 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Closed over the lunch hour. Closed on all Stat holidays. The office will be open at 9:30 a.m. on March 3 and will be closed on March 6 and March 9, 2015.

 

Utility Bills:

Please note that if you are on automatic withdrawals for your utility account and you have used over your $50 per month you can now sign a new form at the town office which allows a one-time withdrawal for that overage amount up to a maximum. These extra withdrawals will be taken out on June 30 and December 31 of each year.

 

Please remember that utility bills are due within 30 days, therefore due before the end of the month in which they are mailed. If you don’t pay your utility bill until the next month or two, there is a 2% penalty on each month that the computer automatically generates. The exception is those that are on equal monthly withdrawals.

 

If you are wondering how much water you are using, we suggest that you go to your water meter and shine a flashlight on it and write down on a calendar weekly or monthly the numbers; that way you will be able to tell if you are going to have an overage. The next meter read will be done on March 31, 2015.

 

 

Arena Skating Change and Booking Ice:

Public Skating Times will be changed to:

Tuesday’s and Thursday’s 3:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.

Sunday’s – 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

You can now also book your ice time online at www.schedulicity.com or call Darren Dyke at 306-641-6915.

 

Dog and Cat Licences:

Every year you have to register your pet with the Town of Bredenbury, it is mandatory. The cost for registration is $5 for a cat and $10 for a dog. A tag is given that can be put on the pet’s collar. This tag will help bring your pet home.

 

Flowers:

The Town of Bredenbury is looking for assistance from an energetic group of individuals to assist with the beautification of the community. This group we hope would take on the task of watering, weeding and fertilizing flowers.  Without assistance we may not be able to purchase the hanging baskets for Main Street this year, as they are too time consuming for town employees to handle. The flower pots need to be ordered before end of February, so urgency is necessary.

 

If you are interested in helping please call the town office at 306-898-2055 and we can set up a meet. All costs and equipment will be provided by the town.
