Village Council Update:
The Village of Kenaston is enjoying the fall colours and is hopeful that winter stays away for awhile yet. Village updates are as follows:
- Please join me in welcoming Chris Prpich as your Town Foreman. Chris started a few weeks ago and he has been busy learning and doing the duties of the job. If you see Chris out and about grading or at the Water Treatment Plant please welcome him by waving or saying 'hi".
- Soon it will be a year since this council's first meeting and in the opinion of Mayor Mike, you have a very strong Council. A lot of different strengths are brought to the table and everyone respects each other.
A couple of highlights in our first year:
- Dredging the lagoon occurred which coupled with the water table drop-ping has removed concerns of our lagoon capacity. Also, enzymes which break the waste down have been applied to the Water Treatment Plant and this will help the lagoon capacity in the long-term.
- Engineers/Hydrogeologists are at the final stages of the drilled well tenders which once completed will remove concerns of the Water Secu-rity Agency in regard to ground water (GUDI).
Please don't hesitate to contact our Village of Kenaston Administration, Mayor or Council..
During the month of October the dump will be open every Saturday from 1-4pm. It will be opened by appointment from November to March on the following dates by calling Dave at 306-252-2047.
- November 4 and 18
