The Town of Luseland has recently partnered with Luseland Bell Acres Golf Club to create a new employment opportunity. The golf club was having difficulty filling their groundskeeper position and approached the town for a collaborative solution. The Town of Luseland council felt this could be an opportunity to train a future facility manager for the arena and created a new job position with a considerable role in filling recreational needs. A hiring committee has been set up with involvement from the Bell Acres Golf Club executive and interviews will begin soon.

The Town of Luseland adopted their 2024 budget at their council meeting on April 9. Some key budget decisions included purchasing isolation valves for enhancing water infrastructure, scheduled culvert replacements for several spots with drainage issues, the demolition of two hazardous tax title properties on Main Street and some equipment upgrades at the arena. The council decided to keep the uniform mill rate factor the same for the 2024 budget year despite added challenges with inflationary costs and the significant increase to carbon taxes. We recognize the added pressures to our residents and tried to exercise fiscal restraint while still maintaining our current service levels.

The Luseland town council pool committee has hired pool staff for the 2024 season. Online swimming lesson registration will open May 15. There will be two swimming lesson registration days at the Luseland town office on May 16 and 17. The pool will once again be offering three sets of swimming lessons. All lesson sessions are eight days in total. The pool staff cleaned the pool basin on May 9 and town public works crew have began filling the pool with water. Stay tuned for pool opening plans to be announced soon.

The Town of Luseland has hired Ty Kohlman of Cactus Lake to fill the vacancy left by Nate Ekstrand, our former police chief. Ty has been in Regina the past five months at police college but will be graduating on May 31. Ty was selected by his graduating class to be the valedictorian of the Saskatchewan Police College Recruit Class #88. Myself, Mayor Wurz will be in attendance to present Ty his Luseland Police Service badge. Upon graduation, Ty will be training for a few months before making Luseland his home and taking on the role of Chief of Police.

Pothole Productions ran another successful dinner theatre, The Engagement, on April 26 and 27. Pothole Productions will be donating $9,000 from their show proceeds to the Luseland/Salvador Homecoming Hall. The Luseland Hall Board also ran a 50/50 on the Saturday evening performance of the show and raised another $1,740 for the hall. Arlette Allen was the winner of the 50/50 and donated over half of the proceeds back to our hall. We’d like to thank Arlette Allen for her generous donation. The Luseland Theatre also served popcorn and snacks at the Friday night show, to raise funds. The evenings were a great success and with the community and surrounding areas support, we can keep our hall thriving as a gathering spot for future generations.

The town is sad to say goodbye to Matt Siwak and Kayla Constantinoff who have managed our community motel for the past five years. They have been exceptional to work with and will lend a hand in training a new manager.

Virtue Construction was in Luseland to do street sweeping on May 7 and 8. They had a bit of a delay due to the rain but returned to complete the job. The streets look much improved, and we appreciated that everyone moved vehicles off the streets so that we could get a thorough clean of the town streets.
