Effective Immediately Until Further Notice
Attention Residents of Radisson
Please Note there will be the following change on the utility billing, starting in July.
Council has implemented an infrastructure fee, approved by Saskatchewan Municipal Board, on your quarterly utility bill. These funds will be held in reserves and utilized specifically for maintenance and upgrades to our water and sewer systems. The increase is $10 per month or $30 per quarterly billing.
The Radisson Rec Board wants to recognize how important the pool is to Radisson families and especially the children.
It is with heavy hearts that we are unable to open the pool this season due to the inability to meet the restrictions required to protect our families from COVID-19.
We encourage everybody to get out and be active this summer despite the pool being closed and we hope to be able to continue with the fall banquet in some fashion to bring the town back together literally and figuratively in solidarity.
This letter is to advise that the Water Security Agency (WSA) in consultation with the Saskatchewan Health Authority, Saskatoon office, has by way of this letter rescinded the Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) issued to the Town of Radisson on Feb 13, 2020. This advisory has been rescinded after two consecutive sets of samples obtained from the distribution system have returned acceptable results, the water plant is producing water meeting all turbidity requirements, the system has been flushed, and is effective immediately this Apr 10, 2020.
PET REGISTRATION IS NOW OVER DUE!
All pet owners had until February 1, 2020 to register their pets. The cost is $25.00 per pet or $10.00 with proof of spay or neuter. Fines for late payment are $10.00 per pet after March 1st, 2020

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.
