New Lift Station Funding
The Village of Kenaston has been approved for funding under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program for a new Lift Station replacing the existing lift station located by the Kenaston School. The current council would like to send out a big “Thank You” to the previous council for the dedication and hard work put towards getting this infrastructure upgraded for our community and applying for a grant to help with the financial aspect of such an important project. This project will improve and increase the pump capacity of the community wastewater to the lagoon. The Federal government is paying $174,200.00 towards the project. The Provincial government is paying $145,152.00 towards the project and the Village of Kenaston will pay the remaining balance of $116,148.00. The Village of Kenaston is very fortunate to have been approved for the funding to enhance the infrastructure that is an important asset to all residents of the community.
Attention Small Business Owners
Has your business been affected by COVID-19?The strength and resilience of Saskatchewan has been on display like never before in the past year. Just as we have all been helping our neighbours by supporting local businesses, the Government of Saskatchewan has also been supporting those businesses and protecting the jobs that they have created through a number of programs. If you are one such employer, I would encourage you to apply for one or more of these support programs as many of the application deadlines are approaching soon.

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)
