The Ministry of Government Relations is implementing a new
Effective Tax Rate Limit of 7:1 for 2023. This will reduce the amount of tax
that can be charged to commercial/industiral properties in our municipality.
The Government expects Municipal Councils to comply with the new limit
beginning in 2023. That means a 22% loss in revenue for the
RM of Hillsdale No. 440. Council would be forced to increase taxes to
Agriculture and Residential properties. Please have a look at the video
produced by The Northwest Municipalities Assocaiation to learn more.

Quote from Saskatchewan Government Site.
The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada issued a decision to de-register Strychnine for Richardson’s ground squirrel control March 4, 2021. Sale was permitted until March 4, 2022 and use can continue until March, 2023. Use after this time is not permitted. Strychnine is a highly toxic compound. There is no antidote.
At this time the RM Council is not offering any alternatives.
