EMO Contact List

Thank you to those residents who’ve recently updated their contact information with us. Herbert is fortunate to be small enough that we can account for it’s citizens, but the Town office still needs residents’ cell phone numbers for our EMO contact list. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to reach residents in the event of an emergency as many of you have dropped telephone landlines & opted for cellular numbers rendering our call list insufficient. This list is an integral part of our Emergency Measures Operation. We always hope that catastrophic events never happen, but we can never be too prepared if the need arises. Please contact the office if you’ve updated &/or changed your telephone system.



New Nationwide Emergency Alert System

On April 6, the wireless emergency alert system, Alert Ready, was introduced across Canada. Now, if you have smartphone that meets the criteria, anytime a critical alert is issued you will receive a text to your phone with a ‘shortened’ version of the issued alert. The SaskAlert app will give you access to the longer version of the alert as well as Emergency Advisory Alerts. A province wide test of all alerting platforms – radio, TV, apps, website and text alerting – will happen on May 9 at 1:55 pm during Emergency Preparedness Week.



Here’s how it works.

Firstly, contact the town office whereby we record the host names & addresses of each sale. This information is compiled & sited on a map listing all of the garage sales. These maps will be made available to the public on Friday, June 15 at the town office, post office & library during regular business hours. Otherwise, copies will be available at the Community Happenings bulletin board (formerly the Zanders building), on the Town Herbert facebook page & on our website: townofherbert.com

In addition, the town sees to the advertising of the garage sale extravaganza.

We’ll start taking names from now until the publishing deadline of Thursday, June 14 at 3:30 p.m.



NOTE: Hosting participants are welcome to pick up copies of the map from the town office to have on hand for the public.

METER READING REQUEST

We’ve had to resort to drastic measures for requesting water meter readings from Herbert residents, hence notices being hand-delivered to those who haven’t complied in quite some time. To be clear, these readings are not optional as they will pre-empt the overage increase charges as noted above.

The request for quarterly Water Meter Readings has been instituted for many years, with the reporting months being March, June, September & December. Policy now states that in the absence of a water meter reading, a $100.00 penalty can be charged on your utility billing &, the possibility of, loss of water service until compliance is rendered. Legally, the town is able to enter the premises if a reading is in question. Why the increase in the overage rate? Water conservation, & availability, weighs heavily on our minds & is an ongoing concern for the Herbert area; however, this increase does not ensure that water restrictions will

not have to be implemented should it be necessary. Subsequently, the Bulk Water rate has also increased to $4.00 per 150 gallons.

As of the April 9 council meeting, a motion was made to increase water rates. See below for specifics. These increases will be implemented July 1, 2018.
