Resolutions

Dutch Elm Disease

Year: 2020

Resolution

Whereas Dutch Elm disease is a significant concern for Saskatchewan municipalities and the entire provincial ecosystem; and

Whereas removing and properly disposing of infected trees can be expensive for municipalities; and

Whereas a Government of Saskatchewan program existed prior to the 2010 provincial budget, to provide financial assistance for the removal of diseased trees; and

Whereas the 2010 provincial budget ended Provincial assistance for tree removal, effectively downloading all costs onto municipalities;

Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipal Association advocate the Minister of the Environment to immediately reinstate the program which provided financial assistance to remove trees infected with Dutch Elm disease and make this program assistance available for all affected municipalities in Saskatchewan.
