Ministry of Highways Municipal Service Fees

Year: 2019

Number: 15-19M

Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure

Midterm: Yes

WHEREAS on April 1, 2019 the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure implemented a municipal service fee for land transactions as follows:
• Executing an encroachment agreement - $300
• Issuing a consent to temporarily close a road - $300
• Issuing a consent to permanently close a road - $650
• Issuing a title transfer document - $650;


WHEREAS prior to April 1, 2019 these services were provided to rural municipalities at no cost;


WHEREAS these costs now significantly add to the cost of road construction and are impacting how some municipalities will be making decisions in regard to titling of right of ways and road construction;


BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the provincial government to once again have the costs of municipal service fees for land transactions absorbed by the province instead of downloading them to municipalities who are already struggling with infrastructure deficits.
