Update for ratepayers – concerns regarding town employees

This is an update for our ratepayers as there has been a few concerns regarding town employees.

Town council professionally approached the town maintenance employee regarding intended modification to his hours of work per week, to commence February 1, 2021. Unfortunately, the employee was not in agreement with council’s decision and chose to resign his position.  We will actively be seeking a new qualified employee. In the mean time the water & waste water facilities are going to be overseen by a certified operator from another community until the town hires someone to take over these duties.

It has been suggested that council members perform the employee duties, this is strictly prohibited by the Municipalities  Act, Section 112, and council will try to make this transition as soon as possible.

The town office is open Monday to Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to noon & 1:00 p.m. to 5:0 p.m., based on  32 hours per week, as is the town administrators salary.

As per agreement between the town and the R.M. of Deer Forks #232, the town administrator is hired to clean the office, a day in lieu is not given.

We thank you for your understanding and patience.

BURSTALL HOMECOMING – JULY 2022

The Burstall Homecoming Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to defer the Homecoming Celebration from July 2021 to July 2022 (July 1st, 2nd & 3rd 2022) due to the uncertainty of being able to host or adequately prepare & fundraise for the initial event planned for next year.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing everyone at our Community’s 101st anniversary!

Saturday September 12th & Sunday September 13th, 2020

 20/20 VISION FOR THE FUTURE

 Unfortunately, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Fall Fair Executive has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Burstall & District Fall Fair.

With too many uncertainties about the state of the virus in fall, we feel cancelling is in the community & districts best interest.

Ultimately, the safety and health of volunteers, community members and visitors is our most important concern.
