    Keeping in Touch with Residents- Message from the Mayor

     

    A new year is upon us, and with that, comes hope that 2021 will bring everyone health, happiness and success, and most of all, an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Since my last update on December 21, over 60 Saskatchewan residents have died, bringing the total to 177. To the families and friends of these individuals, on behalf of everyone at the City of Martensville, I offer our most sincere condolences. 

    As of yesterday there are 2,947 active cases of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan. To date, we have had 17,138 cases. In total, 14,014 people have recovered.

    COVID cases continue to put pressure on our health care services. Although vaccinations have begun, we know it could be some time before the general population is able to get the vaccine. It is so important that we support our health system and health care workers, by continuing to follow the social distancing guidelines that are recommended, and that we wash our hands often and wear a mask in all public places. Most importantly, we must stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID, and get tested, even if symptoms are mild. Please call the HealthLine at 811, or your family physician, and take the online self-assessment at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 if you suspect you have any symptoms whatsoever.

    When you do your shopping, please also continue to Love What’s Local and support our local retailers, online or in person, following their safety measures.

    Our City and Emergency Services continue to work with other municipalities and to share information from the Province to ensure the safety of our residents and staff.

    A re-cap on City programs and services:

    • All priority programs and services continue to be provided.
    • The alternating water meter read/estimate schedule continues. With water usage typically higher in warmer months we encourage residents to keep accounts accurate and current by submitting your reading on your ‘estimate’ month.
    • City Hall, Wheatland Regional Library, the MAP, the Sports Centre, Northridge Centre and Heritage Centre are all open with occupancy limits in place and safety guidelines being followed. The MAP is open but all drop-in programs and pick up games are cancelled.
    • Water service will not be discontinued due to non-payment or overdue account status.

    While the weather is mild, take the opportunity to enjoy our outdoor amenities – parks, sledding hills, outdoor rinks and ponds – but remember to maintain social distances so that youyou’re your family can enjoy good health going into the new year!

    Sincerely,

     

    Mayor Kent Muench
