Putting the Brakes on Stunt Driving October 19, 2021

City of North Battleford Community Safety Officers (CSO’s) have noted an increase in stunt driving within the City. Stunt driving includes dangerous driving acts such as racing or activity that is likely to distract, startle or interfere with other motorists. Stunting is illegal on all roadways and in parking lots.

Excessive speeds and dangerous manoeuvers put everyone on or near the roadway in danger. Stunt driving increases the potential dangers of seriously injuring or killing someone.


The penalties for stunt driving are:

  • $150 fine;

  • Four (4) demerit points under the Safe Driver Recognition and Driver Improvement Programs; and,

  • Second and subsequent offences (after a previous conviction within 12 months) result in three-day vehicle impounding

Put the brakes on stunt driving. Keep our community safe and your vehicle in your control.

Public Consultation for the Renaming of West Railway Avenue to Proceed in 2022 October 19, 2021


On October 12, City Council adopted a new “Street and Neighbourhood Naming Policy.” The revision of the policy was prompted by a presentation from a resident who requested consideration of the renaming of West and South Railway Avenues to reduce confusion for those navigating the City while celebrating our region’s cultural history.

Council authorized Administration to explore the renaming of only West Railway Avenue through a community consultation process and the provision of public notice which will be conducted in early 2022. 

The renaming of West Railway Avenue will have a very minimal impact on the city as there are no residential or business properties on the road. Only two agricultural parcels are located along the roadway. Administration suggested, and Council agreed, that changing the names of Railway and South Railway Avenues should not be considered due to the potential impact to residents and businesses on the roadways.

Mayor David Gillan stated, “Council agreed that the existence of three separate Railway Avenues in the City frequently causes confusion, especially for newcomers and visitors. In response, it was decided to proceed with the renaming of West Railway only as it ensures minimal impact to residents and business owners, while eliminating confusion.”

The new Street and Neighbourhood Naming Policy requires that the City notify potentially impacted stakeholders before implementing any street or neighbourhood name changes. After consultations by staff with the public, any proposed street or neighbourhood name changes must still be approved by City Council to be adopted.

Installation of Smart Water Meters Back on Schedule October 5, 2021


After experiencing delays due to contractor staffing shortages, the City of North Battleford’s Smart Water Meter installation is back on schedule. KTI Limited is contracted by the City to perform the installations and has returned to a full staff complement.

The City of North Battleford will again be implementing the mandatory conversion process. Starting October 12, 2021, those properties in Zones 2 – 9 that have received a minimum of 3 communications from the City and have not booked an installation appointment may receive notice of a pending water shutoff. To avoid notice of pending water shutoff, please book your installation appointment immediately. As installations progress, new zones will be opened and residents will receive a letter from the  City and KTI Ltd. prompting them to book an appointment.

Appointments may be booked now through March 2022. Appointments are available during the morning, afternoon, evening, or on weekends.

To book your appointment, please call 1‑833‑543-8807 or book online at

Your booking password is your utility account number including dashes (for example: 100-1010101-101). Your utility account number may be found on the top left-hand corner of your utility bill. To see a sample utility bill, please click here.

KTI Ltd. requires that all installers are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Their installers continue to follow stringent prevention protocols and will complete daily screening, homeowner questionnaires, masking and hand sanitizing.

The City continues to maintain an accommodation policy for individuals with high-risk pre-existing conditions related to COVID-19 and will work within reason to accommodate installation requests for these residents. However, the presence of COVID-19 in the community is not sufficient cause to postpone or delay booking an appointment.

For any questions or concerns regarding the Smart Meter installation process, residents may contact Jeff Blanchard at 306-445-1722 or
