BALJENNIE — The RM of Glenside invites ratepayers and their families to a ratepayers’ appreciation supper and tour of the new workshop Sept. 27. There will be a barbecue supper from 4 to 7 p.m. Please bring lawn chairs. If you plan to attend please contact the RM office in Biggar before Sept. 25.
The RM of Glenside is no longer spraying noxious or invasive weeds. The landowners need to take care of these problems themselves. There will still be a weed inspector to check problem areas. If spraying is needed on private property, the landowner will be charged for the application.
Those waiting to burn are advised there is a fire ban in effect. Those wishing to burn must obtain a permit at 1-866-404-4917. The RM is doing its best to keep us all safe from out-of-control fires.
Annaleigh Lebruno has taken over as administrator of the RM of Glenside. She has been in the office since February. The reeve is Coady Dehr. Councillors are Kim Custer, Darren Dove, Andrea Owen, Hugh Ross and Alan Shakotoko.
The North Battleford Western Development Museum volunteers are still busy with shop projects, getting the antique tractors that were used in History in Motion winterized and stored in their sheds.
The museum staff are in the process of getting ready for a Spooky Haunted event at the corn maze. Contact Heather Oneill at the museum if you want to be a volunteer for the event. It will run two nights from about 6 to 10 p.m. After those two nights, the corn maze will be closed for the season. The museum will still be open, likely until Thanksgiving.
It has been a busy season for tourists passing through. The museum has also been kept busy with rentals and First Nations activities.
