RM of North Battleford No. 437/City of North Battleford Fire Services Agreement Impasse January 15, 2019

The City of North Battleford was unable to negotiate an agreement with the RM of North Battleford No. 437, for the provision of full-service fire and rescue services within the RM. Although an agreement for fire services was not reached during recent discussions, hopefully, one can be reached by the end of February. The City of North Battleford has offered to provide service to the RM until the end of February on an on-call basis, to allow the RM to provide additional time for discussions, or to provide alternative firefighting arrangements for RM of North Battleford residents and commercial properties should an agreement not be ratified.

The City of North Battleford respects the decision of the RM to choose alternative firefighting options, but as the current provider of service in the municipality, the City wants to ensure that all RM residents and commercial property owners are aware of the potential disruption in service by the end of February and the implications to their property insurance.


The City and the RM of North Battleford have been in a five-year agreement that provided for fire and rescue services in the RM by the City of North Battleford Full-time Fire Department. The City’s full-time Fire Department has provided both fire and rescue services in the RM for traffic accidents, rescue and fire services for both residential and commercial properties. That agreement ended December 31, 2018, and no additional arrangements have been made with the City of North Battleford for services in 2019.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree January 2, 2019

Once again, the City of North Battleford will be recycling Christmas trees into chips for mulch. The mulch is used in tree and shrub beds, improving growth by retaining moisture and suppressing weed growth.

There is one FREE drop off location available.

  • City of North Battleford Parks Shop at 11202 – 8th Avenue
    (during regular business hours 8:00 am – 5:00 pm)

This service will run until January 31st, 2019. It is extremely important for all lights, string, wire, ornaments, tinsel, fake snow and bags to be removed before recycling your tree. Materials left on trees can damage City equipment and become mixed in the mulch, which degrades its usefulness.
