2023-2028 Town of Shaunavon Strategic Plan

2023-2028 Town of Shaunavon Strategic Plan

The Town of Shaunavon is proud to announce that we have finalized our 5-year Strategic Plan for the years 2023-2028! Over the next five years, our plan is to focus on socioeconomic growth, community inclusiveness, and effective governance through transparent communication to offer the highest quality of life to our residents and support the needs of Southwest Saskatchewan. The new Strategic Plan encompasses similar themes to the previous 2017-2022 Plan, with some slight shifts in focus for the strategic direction based on what Council and Administration heard from the community.

“As your Mayor, I am proud of what Shaunavon can offer and accomplish as a community and I look forward with working with you all in achieving the goals laid out in this plan. […] Being a community of choice means that we must sustain a high quality of life for all ages through quality facilities to support a variety of lifestyles. During such, we will continue investing in the Town’s core infrastructure and business sector to provide a safe and sustainable environment for everyone. Together, we can make this all possible” – Mayor Kyle Bennett

Town Administration and Council will be following the strategic direction of the plan laid out moving forward. A public Town Hall will be held in the fall to present the progress of the new Strategic Plan. Throughout the week, we will be highlighting the 3 main goals that have been established on our media platforms.

We are looking forward to continue working with our residents and surrounding areas to make Shaunavon a community of choice to live, work, play and invest!

Funding Secured from Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) for Shaunavon’s 2023/24 UV Disinfection Upgrades Project

Funding Secured from Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) for Shaunavon’s 2023/24 UV Disinfection Upgrades Project

The Town of Shaunavon is thrilled to announce that funding has been secured for our 2023/24 UltraViolet Disinfection Upgrades Project under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) to assist with the eligible costs to upgrade the final two wells to incorporate ultraviolet (UV) light as the source of primary disinfection. The project will be funded in part by the Government of Canada ($458,534), the Government of Saskatchewan ($382,074) and the Town of Shaunavon ($305,727).

“This is fantastic news for our community. Safe and reliable drinking water is essential for our residents and businesses to grow and prosper. These upgrades to our well treatment system will enable us to reduce the amount of chemicals added to our water by using UV disinfection technology to ensure our water is safe and of the highest quality. The ICIP grant also allows us to budget money for other upgrades to our infrastructure that we would have otherwise spent on this much needed UV project.” – Mayor Kyle Bennett

In Spring 2018, The Town of Shaunavon initiated a pilot project on Well #5 to add the process of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection to the water before it enters the distribution system, to achieve primary disinfection. After inspection by the Water Security Agency and evaluation by Council, the Town of Shaunavon declared that the pilot project met its objectives and would move forward to apply for funding under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). Secured funding was then received to upgrade an additional four (4) of the existing well sites to include UV Light disinfection systems. The incorporation of UV disinfection is much more cost effective as it will reduce the usage of chlorine while improving consumer safety and the quality of drinking water. Chlorine will then only be required to maintain secondary disinfection.
