With the warm weather approaching more people are planning control burns. Please ensure you notify the office @ 306-253-4312 of ALL control burns within the RM. If a passing motorist phones in to report a fire that you have not registered with the Municipality, we will be forced to fine you $500. It only takes a moment to make the call. After hours and weekends, please contact the deputy fire chief Adrien Hamoline at 306-230-1603. DO NOT plan any controlled burns when the wind is blowing!!!
Fire Fighting Charges:
The RM of Aberdeen charges $500 for ALL fire calls that have our Fire Fighters leave the fire hall. As you are aware, grass fires can travel at rapid rates. The damage to land and property can become catastrophic in a short period of time. If our fire department deems it necessary to call in adjacent fire fighters from neighboring municipalities, ALL costs and charges will be forwarded to the person responsible for starting the fire. This can add up to thousands of dollars in a very short period of time. Please contact your insurance provider to ensure you have ample firefighting coverage to protect yourself in case of fires.
Please be aware that the Application Fee for a Building &/or Development Permit is now $100.00. The RM of Aberdeen would like to remind all of you that permits are valid for 12 months from date of issue. To avoid an order being placed on your property, please ensure all deficiencies have been corrected and final inspections conducted. We appreciate your prompt co-operation on closing all open permits in a timely manner.
Due to the large amount of road washouts, shortage of gravel, and increased workloads of our road crew, the RM of Aberdeen will not be selling custom Gravel.
