Golf Course:

The Golf Course is now open, with 6 brand new artificial greens. The greens have turned out to be fantastic.

 

The golf club will use the garden shed again as the temporary club house. We hope to start construction in June on a new clubhouse, in a new location.

 

Membership fees are due immediately; the golf course really needs these funds to start construction on club house. The fees will be the following:

 

·        Single Adult - $125.00

·        Senior Adult 55+ - $100.00

·        Family - $175.00

·        Student - $50.00

·        Book of 5 Days of Golf - $40.00

 

Now you can purchase a booklet of 5 days of golf for $40. That is you pay for 4 days and get the 5th free. Purchase a booklet and sign your name and date on the coupon and deposit that into the slot at the clubhouse. This will lessen the amount of money that is left at clubhouse.

 

You can purchase these books and pay your fees at Bredenbury Hotel with cash or cheque or Town Office with cash, cheque, or debit. Cheques can be made payable to Bredenbury Golf Course.

SGI and Farrell’s Interac:

Starting June 1, 2015 you will now be able to use your debit, Mastercard or visa card to pay for your SGI and Farrell Agencies transactions. This will be on a trial basis to see how much use the machine gets used and how easy it is to administer.

 

Lift Station:

Repairs have been completed on the Lift Station. These repairs included: removing all original piping and valves below the lift station and to the main high pressure sewer valve.  It also included replacing safety grating and rails to make changing out pumps and cleaning easier. Thank you for your patience during the time of street closures and lower water usage.

 

Clean Up:

The Town of Bredenbury is looking so inviting. Please keep cleaning up your yards and businesses. This includes keeping grass trimmed and dandelions sprayed. The Town will do our best to keep empty lots cut and sprayed, if you see a town owned area that needs some assistance, please call the office.

 

Hydrant Flushing:

The Town of Bredenbury will be flushing hydrants June 1-3. At this time you may experience dirty water and decreased water pressure. It is important to flush the water lines a few times a year to clean out the pipes. Thanks for understanding.

 

 

 

 

Extra Garbage:

Churchbridge Landfill is now closed.

 

If you have extra garbage or items you wish to get rid of then call the town office at 306-898-2055 to be placed on a schedule for pickup. This cannot  include: household garbage, shingles, cement pads, bricks, or large amounts of other renovation items, etc.

 

The town employees will come to your property and get your extra garbage. You must be there to load the garbage.

 

The garbage bin will not be accessible for residents, only town employees will be able to dispose of garbage into the bin and it will be monitored with a camera.

 

We hope that everyone will be able to get rid of their access debris at this time with this extra service. The garbage fees can be paid at the town office by cash, cheque, debit, mastercard, visa or online using your utility account. Unpaid garbage fees will be placed onto taxes.

 

Call Ottenbreit when you are doing large home renovation projects and rent your own bin. You can call them at 306-783-6995 to arrange for that service.

 

Compost Area:

Remember to take your branches, leaves, garden debris and grass clippings to the compost area. Also remember to bring back your bags with you. There can be no garbage left at that area or we will have to close it down. The area will be monitored with cameras.

 

Lions Picnic:

The Bredenbury Lions will be hosting their Annual Community Picnic. This event is free, but donations are accepted. It will be held on 200 Block of Third Street on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 from 5 - 7 p.m. Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Watermelon, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Ice cream, and Drinks. The street will be closed for the event.

Pictures for street signs:

Have you noticed the metal signs hanging from the poles on Third Street?  There are two at the corner of Third and Kensington (Centennial logos), and two at the corner of Third and Railway (the old CPR station and Elevator).  The Town has plans to put up a few more. 

 

The metal signs are ready, but we are looking for photographs of historical buildings from Bredenbury’s past, such as the old school, the CPR roundhouse, the old Legion Hall, the CPR pumping station in Cutarm Creek, the race track that was located where the present golf course is, the railway water tower, etc. 

 

The pictures should be as clear and close up as possible, and contain very little background; in other words, just the actual building or site.  If you have pictures that might be suitable, please contact Kim at the Town Office.
