Below are some of the many success stories in Saskatchewan that tax dollars are funding. Learn why these infrastructure and community projects are so vital to residents living in these municipalities.
Rural Municipality of Clinworth No. 230
The Rural Municipality of Clinworth No. 230 used their federal Gas Tax funding to upgrade the roof on the Great Sandhills Museum and Interpretative Centre.
With the life expectancy of the roof extended by many years, the community is able to protect their exhibits while continuing to keep the museum open for residents and tourists.
The municipality says, "These same people tour the great sandhills and also spend dollars at local businesses whether it is purchasing gas, food or buying at the second hand store. Some tourists enjoy the small campground in the Village and tour the sites around Sceptre and surrounding area."
Town of Radville
Federal Gas Tax funding in the amount of $254,044 was used by the Town of Radville towards a $485,689 project to upgrade the water treatment plant by installing new filtration, treatment and monitoring systems to help meet new standards for drinking water quality and safety. The project also reduced the amount and number of chemicals required for the filtration process and substantially reduced the amount of water required to backwash the filters by 6,365 cubic metres annually. Radville was on a continuous drinking water advisory for at least two years before the upgrade.
