Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA)
is responsible for the property assessments in the RM of Hillsdale No. 440.
Beginning in late January & extending for 2-3 days, an appraiser from SAMA will be conducting annual maintenance field inspections in the RM in order to update the assessment roll.
The inspections will be at properties where a change in assessment value may occur, such as
those properties with new dwellings, garages, sheds, decks, additions to dwellings, etc., as well as removal of buildings or assessable structures. The appraiser only needs to do an EXTERIOR inspection in order to obtain the dimensions/size, class & condition of the structure in question.
If the property owner is not at home, the appraiser will leave a door hanger with his attached business card. The SAMA appraiser will have the proper identification marked on his vehicle,
as well as carrying an identification card. Individual appointments will not be made at this
time as it slows the inspection process. SAMA wants to be proactive by notifying
property owners our intention to complete an EXTERIOR inspection only of your property,
while keeping in mind the safety of the public and our staff.

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.
