Advisory:  FAO Cautions Landowners about the Surface Rights Board (SRB) use of a “Condition of Leased Area Form”

The Farmers’ Advocate Office (FAO) has been contacted by numerous landowners regarding a form sent to landowners or occupants who have applied for recovery of unpaid rentals to the Surface Rights Board (SRB).  If you have applied to the SRB for a Section 36 Recovery of Rentals, the SRB may send you a “Condition of Leased Area Form” for you to complete about the condition of the leased area.

Ditch Brushing

The MD of Peace Public Works Department is busy brushing ditches. If any residents wish to preserve fruit trees/bushes on the back slope of the ditch, please mark the trees or bushes with orange flagging tape and contact the MD office at 780-338-3845 so we can pass the information on to Public Works staff.

Reminder from TransCanada Energy

Several times a year TransCanada Energy finds that landowners have brushed and ditched over high pressure pipelines without authorization posing great danger to themselves and the public.  TransCanada is reaching out with the hope that sharing information may prevent an accidental line strike.
