Urgent Message from Mayor Bennett
Last night, The Town of Radisson Council and staff discussed how COVID-19 could affect our community. We discussed measures that we can take to minimize the impact on our citizens. Taking into consideration the advice of our provincial and federal governments, following in the lead they have taken in the matter, the following decisions were made:
The Town of Radisson office will be closed until further notice. Office staff will still be working to ensure critical tasks are accomplished. Ratepayers can make arrangements with the office staff to ensure bills and taxes are paid on time, and various other functions are performed in a timely fashion, whenever possible. As well, in the event that space is required by emergency personnel as they handle the pandemic, this building will be clean and available.
Effective Immediately, all municipal buildings used for operations, including the water plant, lift station, fire hall, workshop, and well shacks, will have access limited to key personnel and only for critical operational tasks. Visitors and Guests will not be permitted access for any reason.
All other Municipal buildings for public use, Skating Rink, Curling Rink will be closed indefinitely. No person(s) will be allowed in or out of the building, for any reason, except key personnel directly employed by the Town of Radisson. This extreme measure has been carefully considered. The safety of our many users and their guests is the critical factor.
Regarding the Fire Hall, Chief Werezak has been consulted with this decision and it is understood that they provide a critical service. Radisson Fire & Rescue will still remain operational as the services they provide to the public will remain their top priority.
The Town of Radisson Mayor and Council would like to remind everyone that with the uncertainty of the Covid-19 Pandemic that everyone please take the proper precautionary measures to protect yourself and your family.

We are also asking that for now the public please refrain from attending the Council Meetings, as our council chambers are small and not able to accommodate the personal space of 3 feet apart. We will have the minutes of the meeting up on our website as soon as they are approved.
If you have business to conduct with the Town Office or need to make a payment on taxes, utilities or registering a pet we encourage you to use electronic means of communication and payments. If you have any questions or concerns please phone the Town office at 306-827-2218.

No Garbage in Recycle Bin – that includes grass clippings, used clothing etc – Please check our website under the “Town Services” tab for what is acceptable and what isn’t. All items must be placed in the cart – not beside.
Carts go on the street – wheels to curb – this allows for easy pick up by the truck and please, do not over load. The truck may be able to pick it up but the bottom will fall out of your cart!
If your container cannot be picked up due to unacceptable material, over weight/filled etc, a tag will be placed on your cart and the problem will need to be addressed before the next pick up date.
