In order to minimize damage caused by blocked sewer lines, the Town of Pilot Butte Public Works staff regularly inspects , cleans and repairs lines and lift stations. Other backup preventative measures include tree root control and public education.
In the past year, the Town sewer system has experienced an above normal amount of blockages caused by grease and foreign materials. Clogged sewer lines can lead to considerable expense to clean and repair. Preventing sewage blockage is in everyone’s best interest, and preventative maintenance is the best insurance to steer clear of the cost and inconvenience to homes, businesses and the Town.
Drains are often used as trash cans and the sewer system cannot handle chemicals, trash, garbage or fats. Chemicals may harm the environment, and garbage, trash and fats can cause sewer back-ups that are unsanitary, smelly and expensive for the Town and often the homeowner to correct.
Here are some of the things that need to be kept out of the sewer and should be disposed of more responsibly:
By following a few simple rules, you can help prevent costly sewer blockages in the future. Thank you for your co-operation and please remember that back flow preventers are available, free of charge, at the Town Office by calling 781-4547.
The 2020/2021 winter season is upon us, as a friendly reminder please refer to the Town’s Snow and Ice Control Policy 03 – 2017, to ensure the satisfaction and safety of our residents.

2023 Assessment Notices will be mailed/emailed out within the next few weeks. The Assessment Notice is not to be confused with a tax notice (which is mailed/emailed out in May). If you receive an assessment notice, this means you took out a building permit for a new home, garage, addition, renovation or demolition or if the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) had a callback notification in their files.
For 2023, most residents will receive an assessment notice as SAMA did a “Reinspection” of all properties in Pilot Butte. Please see their general information below for further explanation. Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency determines assessments for the municipality. You can also access assessments at www.sama.sk.ca and click the SAMAView link. If you receive an assessment notice and have questions, please feel free to contact SAMA at 306-924-8080 or the Town Office at 306-781-4547 and we would be happy to help you.
In 2022, Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) did reinspection’s (physically or via updated documentation from the resident) on all homes in Pilot Butte. The last reinspection that was done In Pilot Butte was in the mid 1980’s. Much has changed in homes over the past 40 years.
Here is some general information from SAMA on the reinspection process that was done in Pilot Butte in 2022 for the 2023 Assessment year:
Reinspection’s are when we physically visit every building in the Town, review all ag land records, fixing everything that has become out of date. Reinspection’s are one of SAMAs central legislative obligations, in order to maintain an equitable assessment base. We have been performing 5-10 municipal reinspection’s every summer. In the year following a reinspection, every property receives a new assessment notice.
Reinspection’s are sometimes confused with Revaluations. The 2021 Revaluation was the update to the market value of property that occurs every four years in all municipalities in the province. (All values were adjusted to reflect a new date of valuation January 1, 2019 instead of January 1, 2015). Reinspection’s is updating physical data through inspection, while revaluations is updating market value with no physical review of the properties. The Revaluation was completed for the 2021 taxation year.
According to our records, Pilot Butte was last reinspected in the 1980’s. We are striving to reduce the time between full reinspection’s, as 30 years is too long to maintain accurate data. Many properties in town are newer than that and have been visited since that time, and we have done 2 special projects to capture basement rooms which were successful so we know we are not out of date on that. But there are likely some older properties that should be reviewed to have their condition updated (and increased).
Changes you would expect:
– Outbuildings, decks, or renovations previously missed from the assessment may be added to the roll.
– The condition of residential property will be updated compared to the existing SAMA record (general good maintenance vs. disrepair will be recognized).
– Land size, civic addresses, legal land descriptions, can be reviewed and corrected.
– All property reviewed for correctness including commercial property.
SAMA sent a letter to all property owners in April of 2022 explaining the reinspection, and inviting people to report their property details. They reviewed the information on the returned form, visited the property, and left a door hanger with contact information notifying property owners if they were not home. If an individual was not comfortable with that process they could request that an appointment be made for their inspection.
If you require a tax certificate, they are available through written request submitted to our office via email or by fax. The fee for a tax certificate is $25 for each tax property, once processed, the certificate will be faxed or emailed. The original paper copy will be sent via mail, once payment is received.
Included in your request should be the legal and/or civic address of the property along with a copy of your firm’s cheque for payment amount made out to the Town of Pilot Butte in the amount of $25.00.
