    Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm Installation Requirements
New Rules Effective July 1, 2022.

    On January 1, 2022, the Construction Codes Act and Building Code Regulations came into effect in Saskatchewan replacing the Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act and Regulations.

    The Building Code Regulations has the following requirements that will come into force on July 1, 2022:
    1. Every building that contains a residential occupancy is required to have smoke alarms installed inside each bedroom, in the bedroom corridor, and each storey without a bedroom. These smoke alarms are permitted to be battery operated. If the building was constructed before June 6, 1988, then the batteries used for the smoke alarms must be 10-year batteries (see photo attached for example of 10-year battery alarm).

    2. Every building that contains a residential occupancy is required to have a carbon monoxide alarm installed inside each bedroom OR within 5 m (16’) of each bedroom door. These carbon monoxide alarms are permitted to be battery operated. If the building was constructed before October 1, 2009, then the batteries used for the carbon monoxide alarms must be 10-year batteries (see photo attached for example of 10-year battery alarm).

    What does this mean for owners?
    If your residence is missing smoke and/or carbon monoxide alarms in the locations listed above, then as the owner it is your responsibility to install the missing alarms.

    The municipality and building officials, MuniCode Services Ltd., are not required to enter every property to ensure that these alarms are installed. However, when a building official does enter the building for other reasons (building permit related), then due diligence by verifying the installation will be completed.

    Public notice is hereby given under The Planning and Development Act, 2007 that the Council of the Town of Moosomin intends to adopt Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2021-02 (OCP), and Zoning Bylaw No. 2021-03, which will replace existing Zoning Bylaw No. 849, and all amendments thereto.

    Intent
    The proposed OCP and Zoning Bylaw will establish a policy and regulatory framework for guiding land use as well as the future physical, economic, environmental, social, and cultural development in the municipality. The purpose of the new bylaws is to comply with Provincial legislation and to ensure future development is in alignment with Town goals and priorities.

    Affected Land
    All land within the Town of Moosomin boundaries.

    Public Inspection
    The bylaws and associated maps are posted online on the Town website or may be viewed in person at the Town office during regular office hours Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

    Council will hold a public hearing on the evening of Wednesday, October 13th at 7pm at the Town Office to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaws.

    Due to the hot and dry weather that we have been experiencing the past short while, the Town of Moosomin Water Plant is nearing capacity to keep up with production of potable water.

    We want to ensure there is water available for human consumption and water reserve in case of fire, and therefore request that residents/businesses do not water grass between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. It is during this hottest period of the day, that the water evaporates and therefore needs significantly more water to achieve the same results as watering in the evening.

    It is expected that this daytime ban will remain in effect for the entire summer season, however, if it is lifted notice will be given to the public.
