    Touching Base with Residents- Message from the Mayor

    On behalf of the City of Martensville, I want to thank each and every one of you who are following the COVID-19 pandemic physical distancing and self-isolation rules being recommended by the Province of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Health Authority. We all play a role in keeping our communities as healthy as possible, and I know that together, we will get through these challenging times. Please continue to follow all hygiene and hand washing recommendations, and to simply stay home.

    I also want to assure you we will continue to work with, and to share information we receive from the Province, our own Emergency Services and other municipalities to ensure the safety of our residents and staff. This is our top priority.

    We are also working hard to minimize additional disruptions to our residents by ensuring that all essential services remain on track. Our regular garbage and recycling services are ongoing, and we continue to maintain, monitor and test our water system and ensure the wastewater system is operating normally while so many of us are at home. In addition, our work on major capital projects is proceeding including road rehabilitations and water and sewer upgrades. And while we are closed to the public, City Hall staff are still responding to enquiries by phone and email. If you haven’t yet, we encourage you to utilize our online services such as pre-authorized payments, ebilling, and online banking to carry out transactions. All of these can be found at Martensville.ca. 

    As you may have heard, one of the most recent changes we made was to officially close our playgrounds. This was a very difficult decision to make as we know how much our parks and indoor and outdoor recreational facilities mean to our residents, especially with the warmer weather coming. However, we know it is the right thing to do to keep everyone safe. The closure of playgrounds includes fitness pods in Kinsmen Park, the Kyle Syrenne Skatepark and everywhere people can congregate outdoors.  

    At this time, our entire City Council wishes to acknowledge the challenges our business community is facing. Our Councillors and Administration hear your concerns and we will consider all means available to help alleviate the pressures you are facing. Now more than ever, we encourage all of our residents to find out how local businesses are providing services in light of the pandemic. These businesses need our support and there is no better time to ‘Love What’s Local’. 

    On behalf of everyone at the City of Martensville, we look forward to seeing you again at City Hall!

     

    Sincerely,

    Mayor Kent Muench
