The Village of Kenaston would like to introduce Jamie Young as the foreman for the village. You may have seen him out around town. Please contact the office for any information as an alternative to Jamie as he is learning many new things with the village and isn’t aware of all the current procedures at this time. Thank you.

The Village office is setting up a group texting system for notification of any future Boil Water Advisories. Please provide your cell phone number and provider (Sasktel, Bell, Telus, etc) to the village office at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a message regarding Boil Water Advisories.
The village foreman will be flushing hydrants throughout the summer. Flushing hydrants will pull the water to the hydrant causing the dirt in the lines to move. This may cause brown water in your household during these times. Please allow your water to flow to flush the brown water from your line prior to use. We apologize for this inconvenience, we will be cleaning our lines professionally within the next couple months to resolve this problem. Thank you for your patience.

Change in Recycling
Due to changes in the recycling program Loraas is no longer accepting plastic film products. Plastic film includes: plastic grocery bags, ziploc bags, saran wrap, plastic garbage bags, bread bags or bubble wrap. There is one exception: all shredded paper must be in a plastic bag and tied. No glass is accepted in recycle bins outside the city of Saskatoon.
The Village of Kenaston has bylaws in place to maintain the integrity, onus of liability, and structure within the Village. Examples of these Bylaws include the Animal Bylaw (licensing your pet), the Building Bylaw (Building Inspector), the Water and Sewer Bylaw (payment of water & sewer), the Nuisance Bylaw (which includes yard maintenance) and the ATV Bylaw (helmet use/rules of the road).
Village Council has discussed hiring a Bylaw Enforcement Officer to enforce the bylaws of the Village. A Bylaw Enforcement Officer would contact residents regarding non-compliance to our bylaws and issue the fines accordingly. The Village Council would prefer that residents voluntarily follow the bylaws, but will review this option at the next couple of council meetings and make a decision in the future.

On any block and in any neighbourhood, it only takes one house that is harbouring illegal activities to undermine the safety of all residents of that community and affect the property values throughout that neighbourhood.
The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act is intended to empower residents to take back their neighbourhoods by reporting problem residences or businesses that are habitually used for illegal activities. These activities could include drugs, prostitution, gang or criminal activities, child sexual abuse or the unlawful sale or consumption of alcohol. (See Link)
