The Town of Lumsden will be exploring following the lead of RM of Weyburn No. 67 after passing a resolution at the SARM mid-term convention this month.

Resolution # 16-23M
WHEREAS there are inconsistent policy and decisions and extensive staff turnaround time within the Community Planning Branch with the Ministry of Government Relations.
WHEREAS the changes are resulting in increased demands on municipal staff to fulfill their requirements.
WHEREAS this has been an ongoing problem for many years, and no changes have been made.
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM request the Ministry of Government Relations Community Planning be evaluated and reconstructed to better serve municipalities.

At their regular council meeting on Tuesday, the Town of Lumsden Mayor Bryan Matheson described the SARM motion as the "micromanaging of community planning," commenting that the Town was also experiencing the same.
