KAMSACK — Town council learned that only one tree in the community had to be destroyed due to Dutch Elm Disease.
At its regular meeting on July 11, council accepted the Dutch Elm Disease first survey report that had been completed by Living Tree Environmental.
Since several years ago when a number of trees had to be destroyed due to the disease, the Town has been closely monitoring the situation with annual reports and inspections in order to stay on top of the situation, Mayor Nancy Brunt said, adding that elm trees must not be cut from April to September, and if any elm firewood is discovered in the community it is immediately removed to the municipal dump.

Council approved special requests from Randy Leis, a tenant of Room 107 at Crowstand Centre.
Approval was granted for the renewal membership with SEDA (Saskatchewan Economic Development Alliance) for $377.
