WHEREAS the Province has first right of refusal on gravel reserves; and

WHEREAS rural municipalities require affordable access to gravel to continue to meet the requirements of The Municipalities Act;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the right of refusal protocol is appropriately followed by Ministry officials to ensure that our non-renewable resource stays in Saskatchewan.
