Snow Clearing & Parking of Vehicles
December 15, 2022
The Town of Moosomin is reminding everyone who is performing snow removal, to keep the snow on the property which is being cleaned, and note that the boulevard area which is the land between the street and the property line of your property, is required for removal of snow from the Town roadway. If there is no room left to pile the snow onto your own property, please request permission from the Public Works Foreman prior to placing the snow on Town land.
Further, entrances to driveways will be cleared of snow when equipment and manpower are available, and there are no other priority duties. Please note that this is a free courtesy service only, and does not relieve the owners from the responsibility of looking after their own driveways. Private operators are available on a paid basis.
Also, note that Council wish to remind residents that the Town of Moosomin Traffic Bylaw prohibits the parking of any vehicle (including campers), on the street for a period of 24 hours, and only 4 hours for vehicles being used on a commercial basis, and that parking is not allowed in back alleys.

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.
