REMINDER ABOUT QUADS WITHIN THE VILLAGE
The Village of Loon Lake has noticed an increased amount of ATV’s being used in the boundaries of the Village. The Council met with Loon Lake RCMP representatives at the April 7, 2022 council meeting, where the council learned that since January, there have been a small amount of concerns/complaints regarding this issue.
If you have concerns regarding the use of ATV’s within the Village, please call the RCMP directly. The only way to resolve this continuing issue, is to inform the RCMP . If the RCMP do not know what is going on, they are not able to stop it

SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS
The Building Code Regulations (the BCR) require carbon monoxide alarms and smoke alarms (or combination carbon monoxide-smoke alarms) be installed in all residential buildings in Saskatchewan, regardless of the date the building was constructed.
Enforcement will not begin until July 1, 2022, so you can have time to research, purchase and install these alarms in your residence.
