Community Bulletin Board

Seasons Greetings, Progress readers!  I wanted to get this out early because there are a few important dates coming up…the Pense School Concert this week for one.  The days are flying and we will soon be looking at the remains of Christmas and wondering where that went!  It seems to come up faster every year…and goes by just as fast.  The little people will be soooo excited for the big day to come and that’s what makes it so much fun.  Whatever your Christmas traditions are, enjoy each and every one of them and may 2018 be filled with good health, happiness and success.

See you in the New Year.
Pat Langston, Editor

Community Planning

On September 30th, the Pense Town Council hosted a Community Planning Session along with leaders from our community organizations. Representatives from the Rink Board, Fire Department, Recreation Board, Fundraising Committee, and the R.M. of Pense Council were all in attendance. An informative engaging day was spent with a local facilitator on the understanding of governance and how it relates to the important work we do in the community.

The following summary report was compiled from questions, topics, and perspectives discussed that day. This will assist Town Council to move forward with strategic planning for our community.

Single Stream Recycling Information Sheet


We receive many phone calls regarding the use of ATV's in town. Below is a news release from the Saskatchewan RCMP. Please call the White Butte Detachment at 306 781 5050 to report any infractions.

Saskatchewan RCMP would like to remind the public about the laws associated with the All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) Act. An ATV - which includes quads, dirt bikes and off-road utility vehicles - is a vehicle designated for off-road use only.

To operate an ATV in any public areas, a person must be at least 16 years old, and hold a valid driver's license. Those who are between the ages of 12 and 15 can operate an ATV in public areas if they are supervised by someone who has a valid driver's license, or who has passed an approved ATV training course. A child under the age of 12 cannot operate an ATV in public areas. An ATV has restrictions on where it can be operated. They can be operated on Crown land or highway right-of-ways, such as ditches. ATV's cannot be operated on any street, road, or highway, or for crossing a bridge, unless it is authorized by permission of the land owner. It is illegal to operate an ATV while impaired by drugs or alcohol, even when doing so on private land. Also, driving in a manner that is dangerous to the public is illegal. These are criminal offences that can result in criminal charges, seizure of the ATV and the loss of a driver's license.

If you are found on public land by police, you must provide proof of insurance. Every rider MUST wear an approved helmet and appropriate protective riding gear. Every person who authorizes or permits another person to operate an ATV in contravention of any provision of this Act or the regulations; or without complying with any provision of this Act or the regulations is guilty of an offence against the Act.

You may view the Saskatchewan ATV Act further at

Animal Control

Please do not let your pets run at large and defecate/urinate on other people's property. All animals must be licensed and on a leash. You are reminded that the Town of Pense does have an animal control bylaw in place with first offence fines starting at $250.00

Parking & Vehicles

The Town of Pense has a bylaw that restricts parking on the streets or boulevards at any one place for any period of time exceeding 24 consecutive hours. The boulevards are Town property and they are not public parking spots. Parking in these areas has severely handicapped what the Town Foreman can do with grading the roads and providing proper water runoff. Be advised that Council will have these vehicles towed away at the owner's expense if not removed when asked. In addition please ensure that if you have a 5th wheel that they are not protruding out past your property line. We appreciate all co-operation in this matter.

Angle parking is designated area only. Parking 90 degrees to your property is illegal.

Building Permits

Please remember to get a building permit prior to any construction. Contact the Town Office for more information.
